Public Health Law JD/MPH

To effectively address public health policy problems and influence policymakers, students emerging from the JD/MPH program will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complex relationship between legal and health care delivery systems.

A large majority of the JD/MPH courses are offered online, giving you the freedom to complete both degrees quickly and with flexibility. Because this is an online program, the MPH charges resident tuition.

A key benefit of the program is that JD/MPH students are allowed to transfer up to 14 from the JD program to the MPH, saving them time and money.

This dual degree program focuses on public health and legal concerns at all levels, giving students the opportunity to complete their JD and MPH degrees concurrently. Applicants must be applying to or be admitted to any accredited Law School at any college or university in the country to be eligible for the MPH/JD dual degree program.

If you are a practice attorney, you are eligible to apply to the MPH Executive Program in Public Health Program.
