Bachelor of Arts and Master of Health Science (BA/MHS) or Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science in Public Health (BA/MSPH)

Undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins University that are majoring in Public Health Studies and are already interested in pursuing advanced degrees can get a head start through these combined degree programs at the Bloomberg School.

BA/MHS

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) and the Master of Health Science (MHS) combined degree program prepares students for further graduate work or prominent careers in research and science.

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences, the Department of Epidemiology and the Department of Mental Health all offer the BA/MHS degree program.

BA/MSPH

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) and the Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) combined degree program offers students the opportunity to integrate focused academic training with real-world public health practice.

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences and the Department of Health Policy and Management offer the BA/MSPH degree program.

How to Apply

Undergraduate Public Health Studies students should formally apply for early admission during their junior year of undergraduate coursework.

Admitted students must complete their BA degree before formally enrolling in the Bloomberg School, but up to one half of the public health credits earned inter-divisionally toward their BA may also apply toward their MHS or MSPH degree.
