Students from this program earn a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from the Brown School and a Juris Doctorate (JD) from Washington University Law. The program of study requires the completion of 120 credit units, typically taken over the course of four years.
The JD/MPH joint degree program prepares students to recognize, analyze and address urgent legal, health and socioeconomic issues affecting individuals, communities and societies.
By learning about law and public health frameworks, JD/MPH program graduates are equipped with a unique set of skills to bring evidence-based recommendations to policy, judicial opinion and legal representation. Our students enter careers dedicated to making significant change in addressing health inequities and disparities. Visit the Washington University Law website for more information.
