For those interested in public health, there is a combined BA/MPH program offered at Hendrix. Hendrix participates in a cooperative program in public health with the Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). Approved students apply for admission through the College of Public Health during their junior year and start earning select credit hours through the joint program that will go toward both their undergraduate and M.P.H. degrees. The value of the combined degree program is that it will enable students to eliminate duplication in course content, make efficient use of academic interactions and reduce both the time and costs incurred in earning the M.P.H.
