Applicants are required to meet two sets of minimum qualifications for admission: the requirements of the MSW in Social Work program, the requirements of the MPH in Public Health program and the minimum requirements of the Graduate School.  Because requirements vary, you must refer to a degree program's graduate admission page to learn about specific admission criteria, application deadlines, eligibility and application process.  Your application materials will be reviewed by both the Graduate School and the degree program to which you’ve applied before official admission to the University of Missouri.
