Johns Hopkins University: An accessible education for aspiring public health experts 

More public health professionals are needed to navigate a post-COVID-19 world. We need their expertise on how to harness data so we can quell future outbreaks, how to remodel hospitals for next surge of patients, and how to promote public health best practices in a world where public health itself has become politicized.  

To those seeking to discover solutions to these problems, look no further than The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. As the world’s largest school of public health, this institution provides a wide range of resources and expertise for tomorrow’s world-changers to specialise in various fields. 

That attracted students like Amanda Cullison to pursue a Master of Applied Science (MAS) in Patient Safety and Healthcare Quality. “I chose Johns Hopkins University because the programme was specifically for patient safety methodology and framework, and the faculty was actually in the field of patient safety and quality improvement,” she shares.   

The best part? You can now get a Hopkins degree from anywhere and on your own timeline.  

But is going virtual the right thing to do? Here, we explore why Bloomberg School’s online programmes offer some of the best value to students today:  

A world-class reputation  

Accolades speak volumes. The Bloomberg School has been ranked the #1 school pf public by US News and World Report since 1994 – for good reasons.  

The School conducts research that directly addresses the most critical global public health issues, including discovering ways to eliminate malaria, change the biology of ageing, and understand the long-term impacts of COVID-19.

The Bloomberg School has decades of experience with online teaching. It has offered an online, part-time Master of Public Health since 1999. 

Like many institutions, COVID-19 has allowed Bloomberg School to fully embrace online learning.  

Some online courses are asynchronous, meaning virtual learners can attend classes  when their schedules permit. A limited number of “live talk” experiences deliver more engaged learning with faculty and classmates.  

By attending classes taught by the same faculty as their on-campus classmates, online students will learn as if they were in Baltimore. Likewise, traditional collegiate experiences are available to them. They can join study groups participate in research projects, attend virtual events, and much more.  

Diverse programmes tackling pressing issues 

The Bloomberg School offers programmes that emphasise specialised knowledge unique to each discipline. Practical learning and personal development opportunities ensure every graduate is prepared to add value in the field of public health. 

Its online postgraduate offerings include the Doctor of Public Health; Master of Arts in Public Health Biology; Master of Health Science in Health Economics and Outcomes Research; Master of Health Science in Mental Health; Master of Health Science in Population, Family, and Reproductive Health Online; Master of Public Health (MPH); Master of Science in Toxicology for Human Risk Assessment; Master of Applied Science (MAS) in Patient Safety and Healthcare Quality; MAS in Population Health Management; and MAS in Spatial Analysis for Public Health 

There are more than 130 online courses for those looking to enhance their knowledge in a specific area of public health as well, such as clinical trials, health finances, spatial analysis, and more. 

Full support  

Without sharing the same physical space with your lecturers, adequate online support is essential for you to enjoy a smooth learning experience.

With Introduction to Online Learning, you’ll get detailed insights on what your classes will feel like on CoursePlus, the school’s online course management system. What’s more, you can troubleshoot any components to ensure you have all the tools and applications properly installed on your devices. The goal is to acclimate you to the technology, so that you’re prepared for success from day one. 

More support is available through The Centre for Teaching and Learning 

Affordable without compromising on quality  

All new online MPH students will be awarded the Welch Scholarship, disbursed incrementally for each credit (up to 80 credits).  

Likewise, those enrolled in an MAS programme are eligible for a scholarship of US$488 per credit. Take note this only applies to credits for required coursework.
