About this course

This program permits students to obtain a dual M.P.H. (Master of Public Health) - M.S.N. (Nursing) degree. Students may apply to the School of Population and Public Health and the School of Nursing to pursue an enriched curriculum in public health and nursing studies.

Eligibility Criteria

Students wishing to pursue the dual M.P.H./M.S.N. degrees program must meet the admission requirements for and be accepted by both the M.P.H. and M.S.N. programs.

Students already admitted to one or the other program may apply to the dual degrees program option during their first year of enrolment. Students wishing to transfer to the program from another UBC program must meet admission requirements and be accepted by both the M.P.H. and M.S.N. programs.

Course Modules

The two master’s degrees, M.P.H. and M.S.N., are awarded on the completion of 60 credits of work approved by the Directors. Students must complete a total of 60 credits. Of these, at least 30 must be SPPH, including a 6 credit practicum and 30 must be NURS, including a 9 credit thesis.

The M.P.H. and M.S.N. will be conferred at the completion of the dual program after all requirements for both degrees have been met. Students who choose to receive either the M.P.H. or the M.S.N. prior to completion of the dual degrees program may apply for one of the degrees provided all requirements for that degree have been satisfied. Students selecting this option must withdraw from the dual degrees program.

Two sets of original transcripts in envelopes sealed and endorsed by the issuing institution

They will require 2 sets of official transcripts to finalize the admissions. International applicants must provide original language transcripts and degree certificates, and certified English translations of both documents. With the new on-line application, transcripts are uploaded for us to review, and  can offer you conditional admissions. However, you will be prevented from registering, if we do not receive your official paper documents. In addition to satisfying the document requirements for admissions, we highly recommend ordering additional copies of official transcripts prior to traveling to Vancouver. These extra documents may be used to support any major scholarship application, if you end up applying for  them. Students are not required to submit UBC transcripts to finalize admissions.
