Master of Applied Science (MAS)
The Master of Applied Science programs are fully online, part-time degrees offered by the Bloomberg School of Public Health. These innovative, interdisciplinary programs are oriented towards skills-building and designed for working professionals. The MAS degrees build on the strength of the School, providing unmatched opportunities for advanced training, focusing on both local and global issues, to prepare students to address public health problems through multidisciplinary approaches that apply the latest scientific knowledge.
The programs consist of required core courses, as well as professional development workshops and public health seminars, and will culminate in a final Integrative Activity. The goal of the activity is for students to synthesize knowledge and skills obtained through coursework in a final project that demonstrates their mastery of the program competencies, as applied to real-world public health questions. The Integrative Activity for each program area will be designed specifically around the skills and content for its respective field.
The MAS programs will prepare public health practitioners, researchers, and policymakers to address complex public health challenges. Hands-on training received during these programs will allow current and future working public health professionals to enhance their skills while benefitting from a fully online, part-time schedule. The skills learned in these online degree programs are valuable to both an established career and to those who have recently entered the workforce.
