About

The Juris Doctor and Master of Public Health (JD/MPH) dual degree program prepares students in the overlapping fields of law, public health, policy and ethics.

Graduates earn a JD degree from their accredited U.S. law school and an MPH degree from the Bloomberg School. Both degrees are awarded upon completion of the program.

Students can enter the program after completing a minimum of two full-time semesters (one year) in law school. 

Coursework must be completed in the 11-month, full-time format. Learn more about the MPH curriculum.

How to Apply

The JD/MPH program applicants must apply to the MPH program through SOPHAS and request a leave of absence for one year from law school. Applicants not yet enrolled in law school must apply separately to the Bloomberg School and an accredited U.S. law school.
