GSSWSR Students who opt to earn the MSS/MPH dual-degree are eligible to transfer up to 12 credits (3 MSS courses) into Jefferson’s MPH program. This reduces the number of credits required to complete the MPH program from the original 45 to 33 and reduces the cost of the MPH program by more than 25%.
The courses eligible for transfer include:
MSS Students must have completed one full year of Field Education and all foundation classes.
To satisfy the MPH Clerkship requirement, the MSS Field Education practicum (B541/542) will include at least 120 hours in a community-based initiative. JSPH will review the suitability of placement, but GSSWSR will secure the placements and provide supervision (preceptors) for them.
