Combined / Dual Degree

Bachelor's/Master of Health Administration Program

Offered by: Department of Health Policy and Management

Onsite | Full-Time

The Bachelor's/Master of Health Administration (Bachelor's/MHA) is designed exclusively for undergraduate students currently enrolled at Johns Hopkins University. We encourage all other undergraduates to apply to this program during the regular admissions cycle.

JHU undergraduate students have the unique opportunity to seek early admission to the MHA degree. The combined Bachelor's/MHA program emphasizes innovation and strategic problem-solving by applying analytical, technical, and management skills required to improve the quality, cost-effectiveness, and integration of healthcare organizations and systems. Students in this program will receive co-advising from both schools to optimize their academic experience.

Successful applicants will demonstrate relevant experience in the U.S. health care system (paid or volunteer), strong analytical skills, and/or demonstrate a passion for, and a desire to lead, health and health care delivery transformation in the U.S. Applicants must provide evidence of strong quantitative skills as reflected by undergraduate course work in college algebra, calculus, and/or statistics with a minimum 3.0 GPA.

Applicants who are admitted and have not completed an undergraduate microeconomics course are required to complete a course before matriculating.

Admissions Requirements

Bachelor's/MHA degree applications should be submitted through SOPHAS Express by the July 1st between junior and senior years. Bachelor's/MHA students must be accepted before the start of their senior year. Please note that admitted students must complete the Bachelor's degree before formally matriculating in the Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Bachelor's/MHA applicants must submit the following:

  • Transcripts from Johns Hopkins University and, if applicable, transcripts from any other college-level institutions you have attended.*
  • Three letters of recommendation.
  • Resume or curriculum vitae.
  • Statement of purpose and objectives.

*You may upload unofficial transcripts in the document section to expedite the application review process; however, admitted students must submit an official transcript before they can matriculate into the program. While not required, it is also strongly recommended that students take EN.660.203 Financial Accounting. Students that earn a "B" in this course and pass a waiver exam do not need to take the required MHA course PH.312.617 Fundamentals of Financial Accounting.
