Combined / Dual Degree

Bachelor's / Master of Health Science (Bachelor's/MHS)

About This Program

The Bachelor's/Master of Health Science is designed exclusively for undergraduate students currently enrolled at John Hopkins University (JHU). 

JHU undergraduate students have the unique opportunity to seek early admission to the Master of Health Science (MHS) degree. The combined Bachelor's/Master of Health Science program is tailored to prepare students for careers that have a basic science foundation, including medicine, and to familiarize students with health policy and management issues (domestic and international), with other social and behavioral sciences and with the quantitative sciences fundamental to public health. Up to one half of the public health credits earned inter-divisionally toward their Bachelor's may also apply toward their MHS degree. Students in this program will receive co-advising from both schools to optimize their academic experience. 

To learn more, please review the specific program details for the Master of Health Science (MHS) in Environmental Health program offered by the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering.
