There has never been a more meaningful time to study public health.

And with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School Virtual Plus Campus, accessing our state-of-the-art curriculum and being part of our community has never been easier! 

Become a public health leader from any device, anywhere in the world. Our Virtual Plus Campus promises to offer an exciting, engaging experience that will fully prepare you for the public health challenges we are facing now and in the future.

While your lessons will be online, you will learn as if you are on campus: taking classes, attending a noon-time seminar, joining a study group to prepare for a final exam, meeting with your advisor, reaching out to a teaching assistant for extra help, participating in a research project or practice activity, connecting with alumni, accessing our career services, and—perhaps most importantly—getting to know our faculty and your fellow students who will become lifelong colleagues and friends.

Our classroom instruction draws on well-established teaching practices and Bloomberg School technology that maximizes faculty and student engagement while providing the flexibility to meet the demands we are all facing in these unprecedented times.

Together we can make a difference in creating a healthier future—from anywhere in the world!
