Application Requirements

All applications must be submitted through the Schools of Public Health Application Service. In addition to the application, applicants must submit to SOPHAS a statement of purpose and objectives, official test scores, three letters of reference, resumé/curriculum vitae, and all post-secondary transcripts or marks sheets (see our contact page for SOPHAS’ mailing address)

Applicants may apply to only one degree program for either full or part time status. Applications are reviewed in their entirety and decisions are released via email in late February/early March. Decisions are not released until all application components are received.

Please make note of the statement of purpose and objectives required by the degree program to which you are applying. DrPH, JD/MPH and non-residential Master in Health Care Management for physician and dental executive applicants need to submit a statement specific to the respective programs as described in the Statement of Purpose and Objectives section.

Please ensure that you are submitting the correct Statement of Purpose and resume/CV. Harvard Chan School Admissions will not be able to upload revised statements of purpose nor updated resumes/CVs after submission of your application to SOPHAS.

Applicants to the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency should read these special instructions.
