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.
