EARN A DEGREE
FROM SOUTHERN MISS
In order to graduate from the EMPH, a student must complete all courses with a GPA of no less than 3.0 on the 4.0 scale with no more than one C.
Each student is required to take a capstone course in their last semester. At the end of this course, every student will submit in writing and give an oral presentation of an approved case to a panel of faculty members. This written case and oral presentation serves as the University’s required comprehensive examination.
Because of the integrated structure of the curriculum and the nature of cohorted education, no courses or credit may be transferred into Southern Miss for use toward the degree requirements. Regardless of previous experience or academic work, all EMPH students must take all required courses in the required sequence and at the required time.
EMPH Schedule of Courses
Courses are designed to have 24 or 28 hours in the classroom. The remainder of the required hours will use online technology.
