1. Master of Science in Public Health: One year of course work plus dissertation, comprising a total of 36 tri-mester credits plus dissertation. The creation and publication of a dissertation is expected to be completed within 6 months, which means that the total program continues for 1 1/2 years at an annual cost of $3450 USD per year with payment plan ($3200 USD per year advanced lump sum payment). The second year is billed at $2950 USD provided the student completes and publishes the dissertation (with our help) within 6 months; otherwise billed at the full annual amount of $3450 without proration for students who take longer than the 6 months for the dissertation requirement.
