Pursuing a graduate program in public health at UHM is an opportunity to engage with and learn from a dedicated group of faculty, staff, and students.

Step 1 - Do your research
Before you apply, carefully review the degree programs and specializations to find the program that's right for your interests. Review our website and program information download on the right side of this page for a full list of options.

Step 2 - Pay attention to the deadline
Your applications and supporting documents should be received by the application deadline. Allow plenty of time for transcripts, official test scores, and reference letters to arrive. Applicants should be aware that they must submit application materials to two separate offices - UHM Graduate Division and the Program.

Step 3 - Know the application requirements
Review our admissions page and application for a list of required application materials.

All materials, including test scores should be received by the late application deadline. Public Health application materials are accepted by mail only or may be dropped off in person. No emailed materials or electronically submitted documents will be accepted.

In resonse to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our program has temporarily adjusted our fall-only admission policy and will accept applications for Spring 2021 admission, with a deadline of September 1, 2020.

It is important that those who plan to apply for Spring 2021 attend one of the following information sessions before submitting an application. 

We will be hosting Public Health Graduate Information Sessions via Zoom on the following dates:
June 17 at 3:00 pm
July 15 at 12:00 pm
August 12 at 3:00 pm

While all specializations and degree programs will accept Spring 2021 applications, applications to the Epidemiology program will only be considered for Spring 2021 if:

  • MPH/MS (Epidemiology): applicant applies as a post-baccalaureate unclassified (PBU) student for Fall 2020 and enrolls in PH 655 Biostatistics I and PH 663 Principles of Epidemiology I. In addition to the PBU application for Fall 2020 (PBU application deadline is July 31), the applicant would then need to apply to the MPH or MS program for Spring 2021 by September 1 (note: this requires two applications and application fees - PBU application and fee for Fall 2020 and MPH or MS application and fee for Spring 2021)
  • PhD (Epidemiology): applicant must have a master's degree in epidemiology and/or biostatistics in order to apply for Spring 2021.
