The Bloomberg School and the Georgetown University Law Center’s O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law offer the Master of Laws and the Master of Public Health (LLM/MPH) dual degree program.

Students are trained in public health practice and the role of law in solving critical global health challenges. Graduates earn the LLM degree in Global Health Law from Georgetown University and the MPH degree from the Bloomberg School. Both degrees are awarded upon completion of the program.

The dual degree program begins at the Bloomberg School. However, the MPH Practicum requirement is fulfilled during Year 2 by completing the O'Neill Institute Practicum. The MPH program office must approve the practicum proposal.

  • Year 1: MPH coursework in the 11-month, full-time format in Baltimore, Maryland
  • Year 2: LLM coursework, Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.

How to Apply

Applicants must apply to the Bloomberg School using the SOPHAS application and to Georgetown University Law Center separately and simultaneously. The dual degree program requires acceptances from both schools.

Candidates who are not admitted to the dual degree program may still be eligible for admission to either the MPH Program or the LLM in Global Health Law Program, if they satisfy the individual program's admissions requirements.
