Accelerated Graduate Program
For more information contact:
Suzanna Chase, Director of Graduate Student Recruitment and Admissions
If you are a current OSU HMP undergraduate student, you can apply to the Accelerated HMP graduate program now to start taking graduate classes and apply those credits to your current undergraduate degree.
You are eligible to apply for the Accelerated Graduate Program if you are working toward a BS in Public Health with the Health Management and Policy option or the Health Management and Policy minor and maintain a GPA of 3.25 or better.
Eligible undergraduate students apply in their junior year and begin taking graduate level courses. Up to twelve graduate credits will count toward a bachelor’s degree and transfer to a graduate program, allowing students to complete a master’s degree in less than two years after finishing your bachelor’s degree.
We have identified several courses that could be used to satisfy requirements for both the BS Public Health (Health Management and Policy option) and the MPH (Health Management and Policy option) below.
Available courses that count towards both BS and MPH Degrees
Phil444: Biomedical Ethics (4)
H457: Financial Mgmt. of Health Care Orgs. (3)
H458: Reimbursement Mechanisms (3)
H319: Introduction to Health Policy (3)

Faculty reviewing applications will be looking for strong grades, strong recommendations (including a mix of faculty and work or CATALYST, but not from family or friends or high school), clearly stated goals for graduate study, good quality writing in the statement, and demonstrated extracurricular/volunteer/work activities that demonstrate a commitment to HMP.
