For decades, students who plan to pursue scholarly careers in the areas of sexual and reproductive health have been attracted to this program given that it is led by faculty who are among some of the nation’s leading scholars in these areas. And in fact, many of today’s leading scholars across the globe are alumni of this doctoral program.
The program requires 90 credits of graduate coursework and students are required to have previous graduate coursework (e.g., masters or professional program) prior to entering the program. Up to 30 credits of graduate coursework from previous institutions can be counted, with some limitations, toward the 90 credits for this degree.
