The two-year curriculum allows students to integrate coursework in life course, population, program management, quantitative methods and core areas with practical knowledge and skills. Additional courses may include program design and evaluation, advocacy, policy, and qualitative methods among others. The two-year curriculum is intended for students with less than 2 years of public health work experience.
Students in the Population, Family and Reproductive Health program at Johns Hopkins University participate in a four- to six- month supervised field placement in domestic and/or international settings during the first half of the second year. The field placement provides the opportunity to integrate formal classroom teaching with practical experience in the student's chosen field. There is no part-time option available for the two-year MSPH program.
Components of the MSPH program include a set of core departmental courses that provide a common theoretical foundation for the work of the entire department. These courses cover biological/developmental, demographic and social science foundations. MSPH students in Population, Family and Reproductive Health also complete a core set of courses determined by the area of study they have selected. All professional MSPH students within the department complete an MSPH Essay and Presentation. The Essay and Presentation are culminating experiences for which students apply newly honed skills and put their academic and experiences in perspective within the broader context of public health.
