Admission to the Program
Applicants apply for the dual-degree program to both the Master of Biomedical Sciences (at the GSBS) and Master of Public Health in Quantitative Methods (at the Newark Campus of the SPH) programs. Students will submit separate applications for the dual degree programs to each school; the GSBS and the SPH will share parts of the application (e.g. the student’s official transcript and letters of recommendation) whenever possible. Each school will determine the suitability of the application to the dual degree program. Students may apply to each school simultaneously. Alternatively, some students will already be matriculated at one of the schools and then decide to pursue the dual degree. Students in either school may apply to the other school for the dual degree at any time prior to the completion of their penultimate semester in the degree program for which they were originally admitted.
Admission into the dual Master of Biomedical Sciences/Master of Public Health program requires a strong score on the Verbal and Quantitative portions of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and a superior undergraduate academic record of achievement. GSBS also requires that applicants have a basic background in biology and chemistry.
