As part of Columbia University, the Mailman School puts at your fingertips the extraordinary resources of a world-renowned institution. The School fosters a multidisciplinary approach to public health through dual-degree masters programs, offered in conjunction with other Columbia graduate schools. These programs provide Columbia MPH students with an opportunity to gain knowledge, skills, and perspectives in fields outside of public health.
Applicants seeking admission to dual-degree studies must apply separately to each of the two collaborating schools and must meet the admissions requirements of both. Once both schools grant admission to their individual degree programs, the student may begin an integrated dual-degree program. Students considering dual-degree programs are strongly encouraged to apply to both schools as early as possible. Except where otherwise noted, students may apply to both schools at the same time.
The School currently offers 10 dual-degree programs with the following Columbia affiliates:
- School of Business (MBA)
- School of International and Public Affairs (MIA; MPA)
- School of Law (JD)
- School of Social Work (MSSW)
- College of Physicians & Surgeons (MD)
- College of Dental Medicine (DDS)
- School of Nursing (MS)
- Programs in Occupational Therapy (MSOT)
- Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (MSUP)
