    Cool Dual Masters/PHD Programs

    Hello!
    My name is Melissa and I am a newbie!

    I am completing my BS in health and community services at Empire State College DL program within a year and I am now trying to find a dual masters/PHD or a program that allows me to obtain my masters and PHD in one swoop (concurrently)

    I am interested in obtaining my PHD in Public Health in the following areas:

    General Public Health
    Epidemiology
    Genetics
    Nutrition
    Child and Family
    Infant and Maternal Health
    Health services

    I want a program that is affordable, that requires no out of state traveling for residencies. I am a married SAHM w/ 2 young kiddos so flexibility is the key and i live in Seattle.
    Thank you for all of your help!

    Hi Melissa!

    Welcome to Degreeinfo!

    Walden University offers an online PhD in Public Health, with concentrations in Community Health Promotion & Education and Epidemiology. They do have a track (Track 1) for applicants who hold a Bachelors degrees, however, all Walden doctoral students are required to complete residencies (four, 4-day residencies for Public Health). Perhaps they have a residency location near Seattle?

    Capella University offers an online Doctor of Public Health (DrPh) with concentrations in Epidemiology and Health Advocacy and Leadership. It looks like Capella only requires two residencies (not sure how long or where they are located).
    Best of luck!

    Note to Melissa and all other newbies: No one here knows what is "affordable" for you. If you have a maximum dollar amount that you've budgeted that would give us an idea of your limits. Beyond all that, I'm sure there are a bunch of options available.

    Sorry, affordable to me is being covered by student loans, probably around the 10 to 12k range for the year
