The Master of Public Affairs-Master of Public Health (MPA-MPH) dual degree prepares health policy professionals for roles as policy analysts and public managers in health care.

Students gain skills in public health policy and management necessary to address complex health issues. Students can complete this 55-credit program in approximately two calendar years (including the summer sessions) by applying 12 credits of public affairs courses toward the MPH degree requirements.

The MPA-MPH dual degree requires that students apply to and be admitted to the La Follette School of Public Affairs and Master of Public Health Program. Students can apply to both programs at the same time, or apply to one program while enrolled in the other. To maximize time spent in both programs, it is recommended that students be admitted to both programs during year one of the program.
