The Department of International Health offers two types of master's degrees.
The MSPH training program is intended for students who wish to pursue a professional career in the field of public health. Some prior health and/or international experience is preferable for admission purposes, but not required. You must choose to apply to one of the four academic program areas:
- Global Disease Epidemiology & Control (GDEC)
- Health Systems
- Human Nutrition
- Social & Behavioral Interventions (SBI)
The Master of Health Science (MHS) in Health Economics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will provide students with a solid foundation in the methods necessary to promote the efficient and equitable allocation of resources in the provision of preventative and curative medicine across the globe. The MHS is offered jointly by the Departments of International Health and Health Policy and Management.
