Hi! I was looking up schools for OT masters program, and it seems that Columbia University offers a dual degree for OT (MS) and public health (MPH).
Does anyone know anything about this? or if other school offers this too?
This is something I think I'd be very interested in.
Thanks!

The dual program sounds great and I am interested in the Columbia's MPH in health policy and management, but I'm not sure what i would do with it. So can you please tell me why do you what to get both degrees? What can you do with OT/MPH degrees that you couldn't do with just an MPH degree? I guess I'm just not sure what advantage tacking an OT degree to an MPH degree would do (other than being able to practice OT).
