The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Master of Public Health program will be available fully online with no requirement to take onsite courses starting in June 2020. This creates flexibility for part-time MPH students when designing their own curriculum to meet their academic goals and accommodate their schedules. MPH students can chose from diverse course subjects and course modalities ranging from fully online to fully onsite, to combinations of both online and onsite courses. MPH students can opt to pursue as much onsite coursework as they desire. Courses offered in the School’s intensive institutes (winter institute in Baltimore, summer institute in Baltimore, and fall institute in Barcelona) will continue to provide opportunities for in-person networking and interaction.
The Bloomberg School has been active in online public health education since 1997 and was among the first to offer a primarily online graduate degree in public health, with the introduction of its part-time MPH degree program in 1999. Currently, the School also offers over 200 online courses. The School also offers JHSPH OpenCourseWare, a repository of free instructional materials from more than 100 courses taught at the School. Bloomberg School faculty teach 67 MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) via Coursera.Friday Letter Submission, Publish on August 30
