Program Description

Master of Science in Individualized Genomics and Health

Johns Hopkins University, Advanced Academic Programs

The online Master of Science in Individualized Genomics and Health at Johns Hopkins Advanced Academic Programs will equip students with the theoretical knowledge and multidisciplinary skills to meet the demands of the academic, research, and industry sectors of this emerging field. This 10-course program offers a comprehensive curriculum that encompasses bioinformatics, bioscience, regulatory science, policy, and ethics.


Students can choose from five concentrations:

  • Laboratory Diagnostics
  • Genomics
  • Regulatory Science
  • Policy
  • General


Admission Requirements

  • 4-Year Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited US college or university in the life sciences or engineering with the following prerequisites:
    • Organic Chemistry or 410.302 Bio-Organic Chemistry
    • Biochemistry or 410.601 Biochemistry
    • Advanced Cell Biology I or 410.603 Advanced Cell Biology I
    • Molecular Biology or 410.602 Molecular Biology
    • Biostatistics or 410.645 Biostatistics
  • Applicants who received their bachelor’s degree in a country outside of the United States are required to provide a course-by-course credential evaluation and TOEFL scores if English is not their first language
  • A minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • Completed Application
  • Statement of Purpose
  • Resume
  • Official Transcripts


Students must complete all academic work in a master’s degree or certificate program within five years.

The five-year span is calculated from the start of the first course that counts toward the degree (including time spent on continuous enrollment). Continuous enrollment does not stop or extend the time limitation requirement. This time limit includes any courses taken at another Johns Hopkins school/division that have been approved to count toward the degree or certificate. If necessary, students may request from their program committee an extension of time to complete their program beyond the five-year limitation.

If an extension is granted, it will be communicated in a letter, and the five-year limit increased by the time included in the extension. An extension may be granted for a semester up to a full year, and in rare circumstances for two years.

This school offers programs in:
  • English
