All applicants will need to meet the University of Saskatchewan's Graduate Studies requirements with regards to entry into the School of Public Health's program. Therefore, students are required to have at least a converted GPA (U of S grade system equivalent) of 70% in the last 60 credit units of their previous programs for entry into the Master of Public Health Program.

It is also strongly recommended that applicants to the MPH Program hold a four-year bachelor's or higher degree in health sciences, life sciences, social sciences, or business, and it is also recommended that students have successfully completed an undergraduate statistics course.

If you have been admitted to the program, your knowledge in Biostatistics will be assessed in the Foundations of Public Health (PUBH 804) class in August.  Statistics courses are offered at the UofS campus for those who may need this after the assessment.  The preparation for the Biostatistics for Public Health (PUBH 805) should include competency in the concepts listed here.

NOTE: Previous public health experience is recommended. This could be acquired as a professional working in the field or through exposure through volunteer activities

Applicants who are not native English speakers, or who have not completed their most recent post-secondary program in an English-speaking country must provide evidence of English proficiency.
