A Path to the MSPH Track in TTHRA

The Certificate in Environmental and Occupational Health can be completed entirely online and can provide a path toward application to the part-time/online option for the MSPH Track in TTHRA.

While in the Certificate Program, completing all coursework that is part of the TTHRA core curriculum with a grade of “B” or better will allow prospective TTHRA track candidates to request a waiver of the GRE requirement for MSPH part-time admission. Students who complete the certificate and are accepted into the MSPH Track in TTHRA will be able to apply these completed courses toward fulfillment of the master’s course requirements. In addition, up to 16 credits accrued in TTHRA required courses can be applied toward fulfillment of the master’s credit requirements.

Contact Katie Phipps for more information about using the certificate as a pathway. 

All online students must establish an eLearning account and complete the free Introduction to Online Learning course prior to the start of the term in which the first online course is taken.
