Seven departments within the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health offer early acceptance to certain master’s programs for JHU undergraduates. The Bachelor’s/Master’s programs lead to three types of degrees: a Master of Health Administration (MHA), a Master of Health Science (MHS) or a Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH). 

Types of Bachelor’s/Master’s Degrees

  • Bachelor’s/MHA Program. The program leading to an MHA offers students the opportunity to integrate focused academic training with real-world public health practice in healthcare organizations and systems.
  • Bachelor’s/MHS Program. The Bachelor’s/Master’s programs leading to an MHS prepare students for further graduate work and/or prominent careers in research and science.  
  • Bachelor’s/MSPH Program. The Bachelor’s/Master’s program leading to an MSPH offers students the opportunity to integrate focused academic training with real-world public health practice.  

Bachelor’s/Master’s program options

More details about each program, including admission requirements and how to apply, can be found on Bloomberg School department websites. PHS majors should consult your PHS advisor or your Canvas Community Page for additional information.
