Accelerated Pathway Degrees: The 4+1 Clemson to MUSC Master of Public Health Degrees

Blue MUSC logo above orange Clemson University logoMUSC is excited to partner with Clemson University to offer students an opportunity to potentially eliminate one year of study, and the associated tuition, in their total undergraduate-professional program. Clemson students can meet the eligibility requirements as early as their freshman year at Clemson, and continue on a set curriculum, which will ultimately allow the student to complete their B.S. degree at Clemson, and then earn an MPH degree at MUSC three semesters later. In an effort to retain the best and brightest students in South Carolina, this new collaboration invites interested students to earn a Master of Public Health in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, or Health Behavior & Health Promotion.

Current Clemson students can apply and find more information about the accelerated pathways program at Clemson Education.

For more information, please contact Amelia Clinkscales, Director of Undergraduate Programs & Senior Lecturer in the Clemson University Department of Public Health Sciences at abclink@clemson.edu.
