About This Program
The Bachelor's/ Master of Science in Public Health is designed exclusively for undergraduate students currently enrolled at Johns Hopkins University (JHU).
JHU undergraduate students have the unique opportunity to seek early admission to the Master of Science in Public Health degree. The combined Bachelor's/Master of Science in Public Health program emphasizes the prevention of illness, disease, and health care inequalities, drawing on fundamental knowledge from biology and the social and behavioral sciences.
The MSPH degree provides students with a broad foundation in public health as well as coursework concentrated in one of our five areas of interest including: Adolescent Health; Child Health, Maternal, Fetal and Perinatal Health; Population and Health; and Women's, Sexual and Reproductive Health.
16 credits taken at JHSPH as an undergrad will transfer to the master’s degree. Students in this program will receive co-advising from both schools to optimize their academic experience.
