The Public Health Program offers graduate-level public health studies. Students pursue the Master of Public Health (MPH) as a standalone degree program or combine the MPH with their other degree program (DVM, MD, MS, PhD).
We also offer an accerlerated undergraduate to MPH degree program for exceptional Virginia Tech students who wish to start, and double-count, MPH courses during their senior year and finish the MPH in an additional year.
The Virginia Tech Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences PhD and MS programs housed in our college offers research tracks in population health sciences for students interested in a reseach-focused graduate program.
For students not wanting to pursue a degree, the Graduate Certificate in Public Health is helpful to demonstrate competence in public health.
