AGRADE Program

Through the Accelerated Graduate Enrollment (AGRADE) Program, highly qualified Wayne State University Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) major or minors enroll simultaneously in Master of Public Health (MPH) Program courses.   AGRADE students apply up to 13 credits to both the MPH graduate degree and their BSPH undergraduate courses, saving both time and almost 1/3 of the cost of a WSU MPH Degree.

 

Benefits

  • Apply up to 13 credits (4 courses) to both your BSPH undergraduate and MPH graduate degrees
  • Earn up to 13 graduate credits at undergraduate tuition rates. 
  • Successful AGRADE students receive a GRE test waiver when applying to the MPH Program.  AGRADE students will be formally admitted to the MPH Program after their undergraduate degree requirements have been met and AGRADE MPH courses have been successfully completed.
