Notes:

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

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.). This schedule is only an example of a possible 5-year plan which assumes that the student will not take any summer courses. 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.

Public Health Electives (minimum 9 credit hours): All EPID electives must be approved by the graduate advisor.

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.
