The JD/MPH dual degree option is open to students enrolled at Widener University Delaware Law School's Family Health Law & Policy Institute and in the Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH) MPH program.

The JD/MPH supports individuals seeking to enhance careers in health law practice, advocacy, and policy. 

Admission to the JD and MPH programs is determined independently. Students must meet the admissions requirements for each school. 

Law students complete two years of their legal education before beginning the MPH program. JCPH MPH students generally apply for law school after earning their degree.

Jefferson's Master of Public Health (MPH) program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).
