MPH program eliminates GRE application requirement
Starting with the fall 2020-21 application cycle, the Virginia Tech Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program will no longer require applicants to submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test scores. This decision applies to all MPH programs (e.g., full- and part-time MPH, accelerated undergraduate to MPH, and dual and simultaneous degrees).
Master of Public Health program earns CEPH re-accreditation
Our program received continuing accreditation from the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) in 2018. The accreditation term extends until December 2025. The re-accreditation process involved a detailed self-study and an on-site review of all aspects of the program’s operations — including governance, finances, curriculum, research, outreach, student services, and faculty.
