How to Apply - Master of Public Health Degree

Applications are submitted through SOPHAS, the centralized application service for public health schools and programs. We accept applications throughout the academic year. In order for our Admissions Committee to review an application, it must be completed with the following application materials:

  • Completed SOPHAS application, including fee
  • Official transcripts from all academic institutions attended.
  • Two letters of recommendation.
  • Personal Statement
  • Resume or CV
  • GRE or MCAT scores
  • Applicants for whom English is a second language are required to submit scores from the TOEFL exam.

For international applicants or those attending foreign institutions: SOPHAS requires that transcripts from colleges and universities outside the U.S. be evaluated by World Education Services (WES). Please see www.wes.org/sophas for instructions.

All official transcripts and other application documents should be addressed to:
SOPHAS
P.O. Box 9111
Watertown, MA 02471-9111

Applications will not be considered complete or reviewed for admission until ALL supporting documents have been received. Application deadlines are listed to the right.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The SOPHAS application will prompt the applicant to select which specialty track he or she is interested in pursuing. This is only used to gauge interest, and is not final. Students can elect to switch tracks or finalize their track once they are admitted to the program. If you are unsure of your specialty track interest, please select General Public Health.
