BA/MHS in Health Economics and Outcomes Research
Undergraduate students currently enrolled in the Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences program in Public Health have a unique opportunity to seek early admission to the MHS in Health Economics and Outcomes Research degree.
The BA/MHS in Health Economics and Outcomes Research through the Department of Health Policy and Management is designed exclusively for undergraduate students currently enrolled in the Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences program in Public Health. The program is focused on economic evaluation and outcomes research methods for healthcare. This rigorous program develops data analytic and economic modeling skills, as employed in the health policy context. In addition to coursework, students complete an independent capstone project with guidance from faculty using taught methods. Graduates work in public health research, healthcare consulting, pharmaceuticals or insurance industries. Many graduates go on to pursue doctoral study in health services research, health economics or other areas of economics or public health.
Students in this program will receive co-advising from both schools to optimize their academic experience.
