The Master of Health Science (MHS) in Health Economics will provide students with a solid understanding on how incentives affect the behavior of individuals; patients, insurers, and providers. Students will be equipped to take a systemic approach to promote an efficient and equitable allocation of resources. Students will use applied health cases from low- and middle-income countries to experience the value of economic tools in solving pressing health problems around the globe.

Applications to the Department of International Health's MHS in Health Economics program are now due April 15, 2015.  

The MHS is offered jointly by the Departments of International Health and of Health Policy and Management. It also draws upon strengths found elsewhere in the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Students enrolled in this program from both departments will take a common core of courses, and will also have an opportunity to specialize, based on their interests and experience, through elective options.

The major components of the MHS in Health Economics include:

The Master's Academic Guide contains degree- and program-specific information, competencies, learning objectives, and course requirements.
