Johns Hopkins University Online MPH

Johns Hopkins University Online MPH
Bloomberg School of Public Health

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is a leading global institution offering an online Master of Public Health (MPH) largely considered to be one of the best in the world. Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), Johns Hopkins University MPH program offers a huge variety of course options, and can be completed in two to three years if students are working part time.

The online MPH degree is very flexible, offering the same top quality standards required by the on-campus MPH degree, and taught by the same faculty members. The curriculum offered by the Bloomberg School of Public Health for its MPH incorporates more than 200 online courses and gives variable options in a wide range of disciplines.

Though this is an online program students are obligated to attend several on-campus courses. The program begins with a one-day orientation on campus, followed by a one or two-week on-campus Problem Solving in Public Health course. In total at least 20 percent of studies must be done in person, at the University, resulting in at least 16 of the required 80 credit units being earned this way. The time spent on campus amounts to four weeks (or more) spread over a two to three-year period.

The core curriculum makes up about 40 percent of the course, the balance being made up of elective subjects, meaning that students can customize the MPH according to individual interest and overall goals. Focus areas are vast and varied, ranging from traditional spheres like health economics, epidemiology, and data analysis to bioethics and human rights, disaster and refugee health, and risk sciences. Other focus areas include child and adolescent health, technology for public health research, demography, evaluation and quality improvement, food and nutrition, infectious diseases, pharmacoepidemiology, and US health policy.

Applicants for the Johns Hopkins University MPH program must have completed at least two years of professional, full-time employment, post-bachelor degree, or have a doctoral degree in a field of public health. They must also have studied one math course, one health-related science, and one biology course at college.

Standardized test scores are required; specifically either the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT), the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), or the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Applicants with an advanced degree may apply for a waiver of the test requirement. Other items required include a full, up-to-date resume, a personal statement, and transcripts from academic institutions where the student previously studied after high school, and three letters of recommendation.
