Johns Hopkins Institute for Health and Social Policy (IHSP) is the focal point for policy research and leadership training at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, one of the world’s foremost research institutions in the field of human health and wellness.

IHSP is pleased to invite applicants for its two-year multidisciplinary Master of Public Policy (MPP) program. Our goal is to equip graduates with the analytical skills required to understand public good effectively at all levels, from local to national, and throughout the world. The MPP program is part of a series of graduate programs offered at the Bloomberg School of Public Health (SPH) by the Department of Health Policy and Management and benefits from an exceptional research environment, one of the many advantages of a Johns Hopkins education.
