Master of Health Science (MHS)

The Bloomberg School offers the Master of Health Science (MHS) degree program in every department. Through in-depth study and research in a particular public health discipline, the MHS prepares students for further graduate work or research careers.

At a minimum, the MHS degree programs require four terms of full-time coursework, a written culmination such as a thesis, essay or other written exercise, and an oral presentation.

Be sure to contact your department of interest or contact the Admissions Office for more information.
