How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the M.S in Health Policy & Law Program. We are currently not accepting applications at this time. We encourage you to check back in the future.

Here’s what you’ll need to submit:

  1. Official transcripts from all institutions attended.
  2. Three letters of recommendation, including at least one from a former professor or someone who knows your academic potential. A letter from someone who can speak to your professional potential in health policy or health law is preferred but not required.
  3. Statement of purpose that addresses how the program would complement or contribute to your career goals.

Start by reaching out to people who you want to write a letter of recommendation for you. The more time you give each person, the better the letter will be. Give them as much time as possible so that they can thoughtfully describe why you are an ideal student for this degree. They may have some questions for you in order to write a strong letter of recommendation, and you’ll want to take some time to think about your answers.

Then, write your statement of purpose. Coupled with your letters of recommendation, these items will be used to assess how best to provide mentorship and support capstone work. Considering these issues as early as possible will enable a smooth transition into the program’s longitudinal curriculum that focuses on developing and executing the capstone project.
