Notes:

*Courses with an asterisk are graduate courses used to satisfy graduate and undergraduate degree program requirements.

For the BS in Microbiology/MPH in Biostatistics, one of the Major Related II courses will be satisfied by EHSC 7010; the Major Required III course will be satisfied by EPID 7010E; and the computer science/math/science elective will be satisfied by BIOS 7010E.

This is a sample schedule for a student who comes to UGA with no outside credit (AP, IB, Dual Enrollment, etc.), and has not exempted any requirements (Foreign Language, Math, etc.). It is not a guarantee of class availability, and it is subject to change. Students are expected to satisfy all Regents, University, Franklin College, and Major Requirements in order to graduate. This is only meant as a general guide, and students should consult with their academic advisor about their personal graduation plan.

Franklin College (“FC”) Requirements & University Requirements

Biostatistics Electives: minimum 5 credit hours

Internship (PBHL 7560, 6 hours): The internship requires 300 clock hours in an appropriate public health setting. Students choose the site for their internship, with the assistance of the Academic Advisor and Internship Coordinator. The internship is intended to be a culminating experience at the end of the students' coursework.

Culminating Experience (PBHL 7800, 3 hours): The culminating experience is a capstone paper, thesis, or publishable article that is completed under the direction of a faculty advisor in the final semester of the program. Capstone works can begin prior to the final semester as independent studies but cannot count towards elective hours.
