WashU Offers New Master’s Program for Undergraduates

The Brown School has launched a 3-2 Master of Public Health program. Designed for Washington University undergraduates. The program allows students to earn both an undergraduate degree and a Master of Public Health in five years.

The 3-2 MPH program is available to students pursuing any undergraduate major in arts and sciences, including fields like anthropology, biology and biomedical sciences, political science, and urban studies.

By continuing their education at the Brown School, these students will deepen their access to Washington University’s outstanding resources, including research and practicum opportunities at the School of Medicine, the Institute for Public Health, and the Brown School’s 13 affiliated research centers.

“Brown School MPH graduates are helping improve the health of communities and populations locally and around the world,” said Dr. Matthew W. Kreuter, associate dean for public health and Kahn Family Professor of Public Health at the Brown School. “We’re excited to extend our offerings to Washington University’s exceptional undergraduate students.”

Application details are available at mph.wustl.edu/3-2.

WashU Launches “Career Communities”

This year, career services at the Brown School is initiating Career Communities, programming for groups of students – including undergraduates — based on concentrations and specializations. Each Career Community is made up of students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and focuses on career development in relation to each concentration and/or specialization.

Many of the communities include specializations in public-health related fields, including:

Concentration-specific Career Community sessions allow students to connect with peers, faculty, alumni, and industry professionals in a unique and supported way, connecting knowledge to real-world application and providing information needed to make informed career decisions.

Each Career Community will meet multiple times throughout the semester, and students are invited to participate in as many as they like. Topics will vary from community-to-community depending upon student interest. For example: some groups may explore tips for professional licensure, while others may highlight fellowships specific to an academic concentration.

Each community will be connected by a LinkedIn group, giving students access to new job postings, special program announcements and tips and trends of the industry.
