The collaborative agreement between Schreiner University and University of Texas-School of Public Health San Antonio Regional Campus is called the Master’s in Public Health Accelerated Program (4+1 program). The program provides a direct line for students in the baccalaureate programs in public health and health professions to enroll in and complete their master’s coursework over the course of five years, as opposed to the traditional four years of undergraduate and two years of graduate studies.
Requirements for the 4+1 Program are:
Good standing at Schreiner University in public health or health professions, minimum GPA 3.2 or higher, completion of select degree foundation courses by the end of their 3rd full year of study at Schreiner.
Students are accepted by Schreiner into the program the spring of their junior year and start taking courses at the University of Texas (online and hybrid) the summer between their junior and senior year. The coursework will simultaneously satisfy remaining undergraduate requirements (usually electives), as well as the core courses for the MPH degree. After satisfying the undergraduate degree requirements, students will then apply for and finish the graduate program.
