The Bloomberg School offers two degree programs in an Internet-based format. They are the Schoolwide Master of Public Health (MPH) and the offered through the Department of Environmental Health Sciences.

Both degrees require a small portion of coursework to be completed on-campus.  This is easily arranged through a variety of venues including our Summer and Winter Institutes.

Institutes provide short-term, intensive educational opportunities for public health practitioners and other professionals whose schedules demand a flexible, nontraditional approach. They’re also a convenient method for students to delve into a variety of public health disciplines or receive an introduction to a new field of study.

Various departments within our School sponsor Institutes at different times throughout the year. The next series of Institutes begins this summer. Topics include leadership in strategic health communication, mental health, and tropical medicine, among others.

Check out these upcoming opportunities!

Some Institutes accept walk-in registration, but others have applications with deadlines just around the corner. So, read the application process for your Institute carefully.

Questions may be directed to the Office of Continuing Education and/or the contact listed for your individual Institute.
