Environmental Health Science BSEH (Advanced Science and Pre-Med) / Public Health MPH (Biostatistics) (non-thesis)

Career and Academic Opportunities

The College of Public Health had a 94% placement rate for the MPH class of 2020. Graduates with an MPH Area of Emphasis in Biostatistics go on to work in federal and state agencies as well as non-profit organizations, and consulting firms. Roughly 15% of graduating students pursue further 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, as well as academic programs at the University of Georgia, University of Florida, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Clemson University. Top employers include Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, University System of Georgia, Georgia Department of Public Health, Johnson & Johnson, Ernst & Young, Clarke County and Atlanta Public School Districts, and Hospital Systems (to name a few). Our expectation is that the Double Dawgs pathway will provide a clear step towards careers in data management, data analysts, research specialists, consultants, and coordinators of public health research or programs.
