PharmD/MPH Program | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

PharmD/Masters of Public Health

The PharmD/MPH program is a reflection of the combined missions of the TTUHSC Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy and the Julia Jones Matthews School of Population and Public Health program. The program prepares pharmacy students to meet the increasing challenges in their communities' continuously evolving health care industry and to educate those students to become future health care leaders in public health policy development.

  • Out of the 34 accredited schools offering a PharmD/MPH program in the nation, TTUHSC is one of the only online public health curricular tracks that exists, which allows completion of both degrees within the timeframe of the PharmD curricular tract.  
  • The MPH program consists of a minimum of 45 credit hours, including eight core courses, an applied practice experience (APE) and an integrated learning experience (ILE).
  • Applicants for the combined PharmD/MPH Degree program must have a prior baccalaureate or higher degree to be admitted into the program.

Focused on Community Service

Because the current Master of Public Health program is a generalist program, its versatility is a strong fit for the necessary areas of focus to develop not only strong leaders in health care organizations, governmental agencies, and practice settings, but professionals who would be focused on service to the community.
