Cellular 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. Career outcomes vary by concentration, but many of our students go on to 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. It is our expectation that the Double Dawgs Pathway will be a clear step towards careers in the medical field for many of our dual degree students from the cellular biology, molecular biology, and biology programs. A few fields that will be new opportunities for our pathway graduates include epidemiologists, environmental health scientists, consultants, and public health initiative coordinators.
