Johns Hopkins School of Public Health

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Department of International Health. The Health Systems Program area in the Department has two master’s degrees: the Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) in Health Systems and the Master of Health Science (MHS) in Global Health Economics. These degree programs may be of value to undergraduate students at Wesleyan University who are looking to pursue a full-time master’s degree in the health professions.

We will be hosting a virtual information session on our master’s programs via webinar on December 12 at 12 p.m. Students can sign up for the free webinar here:

Both degree programs are STEM designated programs. They are ideal for those who wish to work domestically or internationally on global health issues. I’ve included a blurb below, but students can also read about them here:

About the master’s degree programs:

The MSPH in Health Systems degree is ideal for those who are interested in roles in policy and planning, health financing and management, and monitoring and evaluation of health programs working in low- or middle-income countries. Graduates of the program contribute to strengthening health systems through the implementation of equitable and cost-effective interventions for improving access, quality, and efficiency of health services for underserved populations internationally or domestically. The deadline to apply is January 15, 2024.

The MHS in Global Health Economics is a 9-month degree program that is ideal for those interested in using economic tools to help solve pressing global health problems. Through this degree program, students will learn how health economic principles are used to address global issues such as migration, displaced persons, climate change, and pandemics. Students will have the opportunity to conduct research in health economics and design health policies in relation to a variety of global health issues. The deadline to apply is June 1, 2024.
