Agreement provides two options for students wishing to attend Tulane for graduate school

by Tony Moore

Dickinson students leave Carlisle with continuing success, and 98% are employed, attending graduate school or pursuing an internship or fellowship one year after graduation. To facilitate the move to studying at the graduate level, Dickinson has developed a network of agreements with excellent schools across the country and world, in a range of fields.

Currently offered are linkage agreements in engineering, business, public health, law, medicine and health and international graduate education, with such universities as RPI, Northeastern, Johns Hopkins and American.

The newest is in public health, with Tulane University—joining Dickinson’s current agreement with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health—providing two options for Dickinson students who wish to pursue a master's of public health degree (MPH) in New Orleans at Tulane’s School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine.

Option 1 (accelerated)

The accelerated MPH program provides Dickinson students the opportunity to take classes at Tulane during the spring semester of their senior year at Dickinson and then to complete their education through one and a half additional years of study at Tulane, culminating in the conferral of an MPH degree upon completion of all degree requirements. The conferral of the MPH degree requires successful completion of the undergraduate degree at Dickinson.

Option 2 (alumni priority)

With this option, qualified Dickinson students are eligible for priority admission to the Tulane MPH program. Students will begin the two-year master’s in public health at Tulane following graduation from Dickinson.

For more information on this partnership or others offered, students can explore the graduate and partner programs pages or contact Laura Kilko (717-245-1740,, associate director and pre-law advisor for Dickinson's Center for Advising, Internships & Lifelong Career Development.
