JD/MPH - U of H Law School

Students interested in health law and policy may study concurrently for a Master of Public Health degree from the School and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from The University of Houston Law Center.

When possible and appropriate, the student s coursework at the two institutions is coordinated to provide a curriculum that integrates law with public health sciences. Students admitted to both institutions may transfer credits between institutions for appropriate coursework. However, prior approval is required, and the procedures of the institution receiving the academic credits must be followed. Typically, a student in the dual degree program develops a culminating experience (CE) dealing with a legal issue affecting the public’s health. The CE should demonstrate the student’s mastery of the analytical methods used in public health and how these methods assist with the development of public health policy.
