The 2019-2020 Application is now live! The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health uses SOPHAS as the application for all masters’ and doctoral degree programs. Applicants can apply to more than one program at the Bloomberg School; however, it is strongly encouraged to apply to no more than three programs. Also, there are a variety of deadlines for the programs. Be sure to check the deadline chart and submit all materials by that date.

If you started a SOPHAS application for the 2018-2019 academic year and are reapplying or applying to a new program, SOPHAS will allow you to copy and reuse parts of your application if you use the same username and password from the previous cycle. Any coursework previously entered in the application will carry over; however, it is very important to update any new or completed coursework in this section. Documents that will carry over are any transcripts, credential evaluations and valid test scores (GRE, MCAT, TOEFL). Applicants will want to make sure to update any previous in-progress transcripts or credential evaluations and upload a new personal statement, CV/Resume and request new letters of recommendation.

More blogs with application tips will be posted over the next month. To prevent confusion with tips from previous years that may contain different application instructions and deadlines, these blogs will be tagged “Application 2019”.
