Approximately 30 new students are expected to enter the MPH program each Fall. Applications for prospective students interested in a graduate research or teaching assistantship are due by February 1. Students who are not interested in an assistantship should submit all application materials no later than March 1. If the deadline for assistantship applications has passed, contact Samantha Kelly, Graduate Programs Manager, for information about late applications.
A complete application submitted to the UNCG Graduate School includes: information on the application form, official transcripts of all previous undergraduate and graduate studies, official scores on the Graduate Record Examination taken within the past five years, at least three recommendations, and a one-page statement of professional goals as related to the MPH program in Community Health Education.
The Department Admissions Committee has not established GRE or GPA minimum levels, but comprehensively considers all materials to estimate the likelihood of the applicant successfully completing the MPH program. Successful applicants have tended to have undergraduate degrees with a variety of majors including: psychology, biology, nursing, business, physical education, nutrition, and sociology. Successful applicants should demonstrate a record of strong undergraduate achievement as well as GRE scores above the fiftieth percentile.
