Special Application Requirements/Information

The deadlines for application for admission to the M.A. and M.S. degree programs are January 15 (early deadline) and April 2 (final deadline), with ongoing review of applications. The application deadline for admission to the Ed.D. degree program is January 15.

Admissions to the M.A., M.S., and Ed.D. degree programs is based upon several criteria including adequacy and relevance of undergraduate preparation, relevance of prior professional experience and related activities, and potential to benefit from additional professional preparation in health education. In general, applicants who present strong undergraduate academic preparation in the behavioral and social sciences, education, nursing, public health, social work, or allied health professions are given priority consideration for admission to the program. Applicants to the Ed.D. degree program are required to submit a writing sample at the time of application (preferably a course paper, master’s thesis, or published article).
