The Bloomberg School offers students a variety of ways to experience our MPH coursework before applying to a degree program.
If you need additional information, you can contact the MPH program office.
The OPENCOURSEWARE (OCW) project provides access to the Bloomberg School's most popular courses. We know that only a small portion of interested health professionals from around the globe have the opportunity to come to Baltimore. OCW provides an opportunity for you to gain unique insights into public health as a profession at no cost to you.
The Bloomberg School has partnered with Coursera to offer high-quality non-credit online mini courses. This new global online learning opportunity is available to a wide student audience without charging tuition. The courses include online lectures, readings, discussion groups, assignments, and exams.
Individuals who have received a certificate of completion from a Coursera offering taught by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) faculty are eligible for a 1-credit reduction in tuition for their first course taken at JHSPH. This one-time 1-credit tuition reduction is limited to one JHSPH course (minimum of 2 credits) offered during the regular academic year prior to 12/31/2014. Individuals must comply with existing admissions requirements for non–degree seeking students. Additionally, the Coursera certificate of completion must be obtained prior to the start of the JHSPH course. Students currently admitted to any JHU degree program are ineligible. Tuition reductions have no cash value, cannot be used for another purpose, and cannot be refunded.
Introduction to Online Learning
Introduction to Online Learning is a free, non-credit mini-course. It is a prerequisite for all online courses offered by the Bloomberg School and takes between one and six hours to complete, depending on your skills working online. You must complete this course before enrolling in any online course. Register here.
Prospective students have an opportunity to take up to 16 units of coursework that can later be applied toward the MPH degree program.
To find courses, first search the course catalog. Then, to register as a non-degree-seeking student, review the Bloomberg School course registration instructions for non-degree-seeking students.
Non-degree-seeking students can also consider completing a certificate program at the Bloomberg School. If you are later admitted into the MPH program, the credits earned toward a certificate may also be applied to your MPH degree.
