Biology BS/Public Health MPH(Epidemiology)(non-thesis)

Career and Academic Opportunities

The College of Public Health had a 93% placement rate for the class of 2017. While career outcomes vary by concentration, many of our students go on to work in federal and state agencies as well as non-profit organizations. Roughly 15% go on to advanced degree programs such as medical or doctoral programs. The top graduate schools for our MPH Alumni include medical programs at Augusta University and Mercer University, and academic programs at the University of Georgia, University of Florida, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Clemson University. Top employers include Amazon, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Emory University, Georgia Department of Public Health, and Johnson & Johnson, to name just a few. Our expectation is that the Double Dawgs pathway will provide a clear step for our dual degree students from the biology and microbiology programs towards careers in the medical field. A few careers that will be new opportunities for our pathway graduates include epidemiologists, environmental health scientists, consultants, public health initiative coordinators.
