JHSPH table at graduate fairFall Orientation is not quite over and we’re preparing to look for next year’s attendees!

Admissions participates in information sessions and graduate fairs throughout the year, but fall is our busiest travel season.

In September, we’ll take part in two online events: the SOPHAS Virtual Fair and our own “Ins and Outs of Applying to the Bloomberg School.

We’ll also join face-to-face events in New York, N.Y.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Charlottesville, Va.; Williamsburg, Va.; Medford, Mass.; Boston, Mass.; Syracuse, N.Y. and Williamstown, Mass.

We update our calendar frequently, so check back to see when we’ll be in your area!

Fall Orientation is underway!

We thought we'd share a few photos.

What are your favorite things about the Bloomberg School?

I asked our admissions team to take a picture of their favorite thing. Here is what they came up with!

Favorite things around the School

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • amazing people! (represented here by the staff of Student Affairs)
  • one of many electronic posters listing intriguing lectures and events – there’s always something going on!
  • coffee from the Daily Grind – aside from the caffeine, a trip to the coffee shop means snippets of conversation with students, faculty and staff
  • ninth floor terrace – good for reading, eating or stealing a moment of sunshine
  • upside down map provides a different perspective of a familiar image
  • view of Baltimore from a treadmill in the ninth floor gym

So, for those prospective students who can’t make the trip to Baltimore, we offer a series of virtual information sessions beginning in September.

“The Ins and Outs of Applying to the Bloomberg School”

During this session, admissions representatives will discuss our many academic programs and how to apply. Participants will have a chance to ask questions and our staff will do our best to answer. This session is offered twice: once at noon on September 26 and again at noon on October 31.

“MHA, MHS, MPH, MPP, MSPH, & ScM – What’s the Difference?”

Our school offers the alphabet soup in public health master’s degrees. In this session, admissions representatives will cover them all, explaining the differences, application requirements and more. This session is offered at noon on October 8.

All sessions are recorded and posted to the website for your later reference.
