Our online degree and certificate programs offer flexibility, convenience, and the same high quality as our on-site programs. Online courses provide the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and at your own pace — participating from anywhere that offers access to the internet.
Online does not mean “on your own.” In addition to the independence of online learning, our students enjoy participating in JSPH’s thriving learning communities. You will be introduced to your community and to online study at JSPH through a comprehensive online orientation, to help provide a smooth transition into each program’s coursework, resources, and student colleagues.
You will also benefit from our application of best practices in online education that enhance learning and expand critical thinking skills. Equally important, you will be paired with a personal faculty mentor — a nationally recognized expert in the field — who will provide guidance with the capstone project.
Jefferson School of Population Health offers the following programs online:
- Master of Science in Health Policy*

*In addition to online coursework – 13 courses (39 credits), the master’s programs also require a one-week Capstone Seminar Experience on the Jefferson campus at the end of the program.
Along with these benefits, online learning will bring special demands. Because of its intensity and rigor, online learning may not be for everyone. If you have any unanswered questions about online learning at JSPH, we recommend you take a look through our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
