Is it possible to customize a cross departmental program?
For international students who have done their undergrad in the US, do they still have to take the TOEFL again?
I have a PhD in cultural anthropology and two years work experience in public health. I’m interested in the MPH Part-time/online program and wondering if I need to retake the GRE…If I need to reach out to an individual department to get clarification, who can I contact?
I am interested in two different MSH programs, the one in Mental Health and the Biochem and Molecular Bio program. Can I apply to both programs or do I need to select only one when applying? Is there any overlapping academic content on these programs?
is there any requirement saying we cannot change our work during four years' study if we're enrolled into DrPH program?
I’m planning the Masters in Molecular Bio & Biochem as a route to med school. Is that something I can get help with at Bloomberg?
My ultimate career goal is becoming an MD. Thus, on the research component of the MSH programs, can the research be done with MDs or MD/PhDs?
Also, can you clarify making the transition from MHS to ScM
Hello! I am finishing up my undergraduate degree and am interested in applying for the MSPH program before applying for medical school. I am wondering how many of your students applying to this program are prospective medical students? What are some the resources available for prospective medical students, if any? Thank you!
Does JHPH offer online course to satisfy pre-requisite courses? What are requirements for transferable institutions?
Since the MPH requires 2 years of public health work experience, is it aimed more towards those returning to school? Or is it also a good program for continuing students as well (with the 2 year gap)?
Is GRE required for MPH for international students? And are scholarships available?
Mauricio Lopez Manning
Hello, last week I requested deferral of my enrollment to the DrPH given the current situation (I am an international student) but received no response, who should I contact? (I sent my letter to the admissions services email and the programa manager, Brenda Hedrick?)
Can you take classes outside the curriculum (for example fulfill a requirement for a grad degree)
*professional degree (ie med school)
how to apply for dual degree with Bloomberg in MHS ? I am just admitted to MSSI in Whiting and there is a dual degree with Bloomberg. And I am interested in MHS in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology

im planning at pursuing an MPH degree after im done with my final year of medschool at an MBBS program. Although I was told that the GRE can be waved, what score would be something that's considered to be safe in terms of admissions at the full time MPH track?
Just to confirm, when enrolled in the Master’s program - do we need to pay additionally for a certificate program?
Can I submit more than one application within the MSPH program? Like applying within different departments?
Read on your website that TOEFL is waived for countries such as Nigeria. Having done my undergraduate in English all through
Is the main difference between an MPH and masters degree in the same area (such as biostatistics) the interdisciplinary focus versus a deeper and more specific focus?
Have previous students pursued the BMB (ScM) program in order to enhance an application for an MD-PhD?
Is there a internship program/practicum or study abroad to gain practical skills during the MPH program?
employees from health care company like Pharma or device companies can apply the DrPH program?

I was wandering if getting high gre score(above avg) could be helpful to make up for below avg gpa score. Or would you recommend on focusing on other things.
Like for the final thesis project
Hello. Did I join this session late?
I know you get a wide variety of applicants, but do you have any statistics for avg GPA and test scores for applicants applying after completion of their undergrad program?
For the MSPH in Global Epidemiology & Control, what are common undergrad degrees students come in with? How heavy of a math/stats background is needed?
Thank you so much!
Is it possible to start your MPH on campus full time and move to an online format after one or more terms? My job offers a 6 month sabbatical for education
MPH Program Office email - firstname.lastname@example.org
I am interested in spatial modelling of diseases and how they affect different demographics. I was wondering however, if applying for the MSPH in Biostats would narrow my scope down too much and if it would be better for me to apply for the MSPH in Epidemiology?
Since most med schools require a pre-med committee letter. Would the grad program be able to write this letter or would I need to ask my undergrad pre-med committee? And get individual faculty letters from my graduate program.
What is the on site time commitment for the DRPH program? (on campus courses, online courses, hibrid program, experience based opportunities).
Can courses be taken at other jhu schools to support DRPh projects? (statistical analysis, spatial analysis.)
Do PhD students in International health (SBI track) actually travel abroad?
How would the application process for the dual degree in MA (international relations) with an MSPH work?
What would be a considered a good/ competitive undergrad GPA/ GRE score when applying to the MSPH program?
Do any programs JHSPH (including certificate programs) accept Americorps educational award funds?
Is there a limit to how many applications can be submitted within the same program? It’s three if I’m not mistaken?
My GRE scores expire in May of this year, but I am intending to apply this fall. Is it possible to submit my scores now and have them count or do I need to retake the test?
Syed Hashim Abbas Ali Bokhari
for the GRE, if theres one attempt where you didn't do too well and you think you can get a better score, can you take the exam again and report your best scores like a student can with the TOEFL exam?
I have to go to work, thank you for the presentation and for answering all of our questions. Looking forward to submitting my application and hearing back from JHSPH!
