Master of Public Health Program

How To Apply

To have your application reviewed by the M.P.H. program, you must meet the admission requirements of the WSU Graduate School. Minimum requirements include an earned bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 2.7 (based on a 4.0 grading scale). International students must meet admission requirements provided by the WSU University Center for International Education.

Applicants to the M.P.H. program must send an official Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score to the Graduate School (Institution Code is 1179). The M.P.H. program will only review applications with a minimum revised test score of Verbal at 143 and Quantitative at 143. Applicants with an earned graduate or advanced professional degree from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States or Canada do not need to submit GRE scores. Note: The USMLE and ECFMG will not be considered in lieu of the GRE.

You must apply online to the Graduate School. Official transcripts from all universities or colleges ever attended and currently attending should be addressed to the Graduate School, Wright State University, 3640 Colonel Glenn Hwy., Dayton, OH 45435-0001.

When applying for admission to the M.P.H. program, you will be asked to include the following:

  • A personal statement articulating your career goals as related to the completion of the M.P.H. Your personal statement should not exceed 500 words.
  • Two letters of recommendation from professionals who can speak to your professional or academic experience.
  • A current resume or CV.

The M.P.H. program only matriculates students as a cohort each fall semester; students may apply for other semesters only with prior approval from the program. To be considered for any competitive scholarships the university has to offer, you should complete your application by January 1. To be considered for fall admission, you should complete your application by April 1. Applicants will be notified no later than May 1 of their admission status.

Pre-Admission Interview

Applicants being recommended for admission may be asked to meet with the M.P.H. program director, or designee, prior to final admission determination.
