Simmons’ online Master of Public Health program seeks applicants who are passionate about improving health equity and who are highly motivated to develop the skill set for change-oriented leadership. We welcome candidates from all academic disciplines and consider health-related or social science background or experience an added qualification. We value prior applied community experiences, whether through work, volunteering, or community organizing, as these inform and enhance students’ collaborative learning experiences.
The MPH@Simmons Admissions Committee reviews applications holistically, striving to evaluate a candidate’s ability, aptitude, and promise for academic success in the program and professional success upon graduation.
Students who submit their applications by the priority application deadline will save $30 on their application fee. Early applications are encouraged, as admission is granted on a rolling basis. We are currently accepting applications to begin classes for the following terms.
