Post-Baccalaureate Classes

If you are planning to apply to the OMPH program or M.A./M.S. in Health Studies, please note that any classes taken as a post-bac student will not necessarily transfer towards your degree if you get accepted to the program. Your adviser will determine what courses can apply to your degree once you have determined your area of emphasis and discussed your career goals.

Admission to Portland State University's Graduate Post-Baccalaureate program does not constitute admission to the M.A./M.S. Health Studies or MPH program. The School of Community Health reserves the right to restrict classes to the M.A./M.S. Health Studies and MPH admitted students. Please refer to the Post-Baccalaureate Admissions page for more information: http://www.pdx.edu/admissions/postbaccalaureate-admission.

An updated list of graduate level, unrestricted and restricted, classes are provided below.
