A foundation in the liberal arts and sciences is the perfect launchpad for any academic or intellectual pursuit a student may want to tackle after graduation. And Dickinson’s partnership agreements allow students to further their studies, seamlessly transitioning into a wide range of graduate programs—from business, engineering and law to international education and medicine.
Now, a new partnership program with Columbia University focused on public health has been added to the current slate.
“The program with Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health is an ideal match, and Columbia’s strong, well-established program is a fine choice for students interested in pursuing a career in public health and related fields,” says Deb Bolen, assistant provost. The Bureau for Labor Statistics estimates that employment in the healthcare and social assistance sector is projected to add nearly 4 million jobs by 2026, about one-third of all new jobs. So the partnership is a great way for students to segue into the health care arena and open a door to a rewarding career.
The agreement provides Dickinson students the opportunity to start their graduate careers early, with the 4+1 accelerated option, or with priority admission, for those who choose to begin after graduating from Dickinson, with the 4+2 option. Both paths lead students to a master of public health (MPH) degree.
