Online Graduate Programs

AAP students can integrate online courses into their graduate studies. Some programs offer their entire degree online; others provide online courses but require in-person course work as well.

High Levels of Interaction

Online students communicate with their instructors and classmates through discussion boards, group assignments, and the occasional live online event. Students often say the online environment allows them to learn as much from their classmates as they do from their instructors and assignments.

Technical Requirements

AAP provides an online student orientation to train students on specific technologies used in online courses. However, students should have a reasonable knowledge of basic personal computing before they take an online course.

Specifically, students should be able to:

  • Navigate a web browser
  • Compose and format documents in commonly used software programs
  • Upload and download files
  • Work within a file/folder structure on their computer

Hardware/Software Requirements

Online students should have the following minimum hardware and software. (Information about supported web browsers will be provided in your student orientation.)

  • Windows users: Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7.
  • Mac users: Mac OS 10.10, Mac OS 10.9, Mac OS 10.8.

Students will need speakers and a headset, plus headphones and a microphone.

Important:   Students will need administrative access to the machine(s) they will be using for their course work in order to download safe third-party software like RealPlayer, Adobe Connect, Adobe Reader, and Flash Player. Also, students should be aware of any firewalls or other restrictions associated with the machines and/or locations they plan to use for their studies before they begin their course work.

The Course Management System

All AAP online courses are available in the Canvas Course Management System. This web-based software includes areas for you to read and view the course content, communicate with your instructor and classmates on the discussion board, upload and download course assignments, take online exams and quizzes, and monitor your grades.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your essay should outline your areas of interest and how they align with current faculty areas of work. The Admissions Committee will look for a summary of your previous experience, qualifications, and information about your interest in a specific area of research. We will also consider your writing skills and determine whether there is a good match between your research interests and our faculty expertise.

Although contacting a faculty member in your research area is not required, it is an opportunity to become familiar with researchers in your area of interest and to ask questions not addressed on the school’s website. While it can be helpful to have a direct match, students often have great success in the program when a piece of the research overlaps with the advisor.   If there is a particular faculty member whose work interests you, you may discuss this as part of your application essay.   The best place to start is with the PhD Assistant Director of Recruitment , Laura Panozzo at [email protected] and with a review of our most recent PhD virtual information session at https://nursing.jhu.edu/admissions/index.html .

Once you are admitted to the PhD program and decide to matriculate, the PhD Admissions Committee determines who will be your advisor(s). Generally, one advisor is selected, but in some instances-depending on your research area-two advisors are assigned, one of them serving as the primary advisor and the second serving as a co-advisor. One of the faculty would be your primary advisor and the second would serve as a co-advisor. We try to match students with faculty members who have similar research interests.

The PhD program prepares the nurse scholar to develop and conduct scientific research that advances the theoretical foundation of nursing practice and healthcare delivery. The program is designed to prepare nurses for careers as research scientists, often in academic or governmental positions.

The DNP program prepares nurse leaders for evidence-based practice in both direct patient care and executive roles.   View Comparison Chart

View information about a unique opportunity to earn a dual-degree DNP/PhD.

The time needed to complete the program varies, depending on how fast you progress. Some students in our program finish their degree in three years, others take four years or longer.

Students whose native language is not English are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Johns Hopkins School of Nursing requires a minimum TOEFL-IBT score of 100 to be eligible for admission. More

The PhD program has a Biostatistics heavy curriculum so previous coursework in Biostatistics is helpful.  We encourage students that have not had previous coursework in this area, or have not taken the coursework in the past five years, to look for ways to strengthen that knowledge base before matriculating into the program.  Please reach out to Laura Panozzo, Assistant Director of Recruitment, at [email protected] for a list of resources to help you prepare while applying and before matriculating into the program. 

GRE scores are accepted but not required.

The PhD program is a full time, onsite program only. 

Students should expect to spend 15 hours a week on campus on their funded research residency in collaboration with their faculty advisor for all three years that they receive full funding.  Students should expect to spend an additional 15-20 hours per week on coursework.

Coursework completed outside the United States must be evaluated and translated into US equivalencies.  Official transcript evaluations must be submitted as part of the application process, and applications will not be considered complete until all evaluations for any work completed outside the United States are received.  The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing recommends WES-ICAP .

Teaching via an online format allows my students to watch lectures in advance of our virtual discussions and prepare more focused questions leading to terrific discussions. Best of all, online and virtual instruction makes it much easier to invite exciting guest speakers to address the class.

Erik Jones Professor of European Studies and International Political Economy

Online classes are broken up into weekly modules, consisting of pre-recorded lectures, activities, and assignments. While there is no scheduled class time for you to listen to lectures, faculty will schedule regular virtual meetings enabling you to interact with your classmates. Assignments and activities, just as in in-person courses, have due dates and deadlines and are administered using the learning management system where the entire online course is housed.

Virtual classes follow a similar schedule to in-person courses. Students and faculty meet virtually, via a platform like Zoom, at a regularly scheduled time for the duration of the class session. Communication with professors and learning consists of listening to lectures, participating in discussions, and solving equations and problem-sets in real time. The administration of assignments and exams take place in real-time during the virtual session, as well as over email and content management systems like Blackboard.

The nature of an online course allows you to engage with course content in pieces. Many students appreciate the convenience of reviewing lectures online where content is broken down into segments – and can be watched several times. Weekly modules ensure that assignments and activities have deadlines to be met; however, you have the ability to process, ask questions, and respond on your own schedule. Online courses also have a “digital home” where all elements of the class exist, including message boards, forums, and chat features. All assignments are accessed and submitted online; quizzes and tests are taken and graded online.

In a virtual class, the lecture is held live, and students are able to follow up with the instructor outside of lectures to ask questions via email or live chat or virtual office hours. The convenience of connecting remotely is a key benefit of virtual classes. Many students also appreciate how the chat features allow questions for the instructor to be moderated.

The Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree is a professional doctoral degree for early to mid-career public health professionals with an MPH or health-related master's degree. It is well-suited to professionals seeking leadership roles in domestic or international public health agencies and organizations. Graduates are able to: (1) synthesize  and translate knowledge  to practice, (2) communicate with and convene diverse partners to effect change across a range of public health settings, and (3) advance programs, policies, and services through evidence-based public health practice. Alumni hold mid to senior-level positions in a variety of settings, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, academia, and healthcare.

In addition to the standard School application materials, DrPH applicants should also possess: (2) an MPH or public health-related master's degree; and (2) a minimum of 3 years of professional, full-time public health experience in a relevant area. Students apply to and matriculate into a concentration, which offers specialized training in a specific area of public health. 

The DrPH program is built around a set of required courses that offer the opportunity to achieve foundational competencies in health policy, public health practice, professional skills (i.e., leadership, strategic planning, communication), data analysis, education, and workforce development. Students develop specialized expertise through the completion of coursework for their chosen  concentration or track. I n addition to coursework, the program requires applied practice experience (i.e., practicum) and a dissertation. 

The DrPH program is a flexible, part-time program with courses offered during regular terms and weeklong intensives. The program can be completed fully online. Students are required to register for a minimum of 1 credit per term. Most students complete the DrPH in 5-7 years; part-time students have up to 9 years to complete the program.

Concentrations (Tracks)

  • Health Equity and Social Justice
  • Global Health: Policy & Evaluation
  • Health Policy and Management (Healthcare Management & Leadership; Public Health Informatics; Health Policy; Quality & Patient Safety)
  • Implementation Science
  • Women's and Reproductive Health

Program Requirements

The program includes core requirements, foundational coursework, concentration coursework, an applied practice experience (practicum), a comprehensive written examination, and a dissertation. Students will be required to successfully complete a minimum of 64 term credits, including 57 didactic credits, 2 credits from dissertation proposal development, and 5 credits from dissertation research. Dissertation work includes preliminary and final oral examinations, a public seminar, and an integrative learning experience. Of the 57 didactic credits, 29 are earned through foundational courses and 28 are earned through concentration courses. Each concentration has required and elective courses. After completing required courses, students must complete elective courses to meet the minimum requirement for concentration credits. 

Course location and modality is found on the BSPH website .

Core Requirements

The following courses are prerequisites for the DrPH program. If students have not taken these courses or equivalent ones within the past 5 years (for a B or higher), they will be required to take them after matriculation.
