child holding globeEarlier this month our staff answered questions in a virtual chat. Some participating students knew exactly which degree they were interested in and what they wanted to do with it. Others were a little unsure of “public health” and what opportunities exist in the discipline.

It’s that last group of students I want to help today.

Public health is a broad field encompassing everything from the etymology of disease to health promotion, the molecular structure of viruses to health care delivery.  What you study and where you go after graduation is largely up to you!

Below are some resources for learning more about public health in general and the Bloomberg School specifically.

I hope this helps!

If you’re one of our beloved regular readers, you might have noticed that our posts haven’t been as frequent lately. That’s in part due to the season, but it’s mainly due to the production of the Academic Prospectus.

The new Prospectus is almost here! I have the proofs on my desk.

It’s lovely, if I do say so myself.

You may request a copy of the 2016-2017 Academic Prospectus online. A pdf version will be posted for your online viewing shortly.

We know you can’t wait!

Take Our Survey!Did you receive a copy of our Prospectus?

We’d love to hear what you thought!

When you get a chance, please take our short survey (it’s just nine quick questions!). We’ll use your feedback in the development of future materials for prospective students.

Pretty please with sugar and a cherry on top (in health-conscious moderation, of course)!

Thank you!

Happy studentThere are still seven application deadlines in our future. Applications are coming in and we’re busy processing them.

BUT, in the meantime, over 250 of you have been admitted!


What should you do now?

First, take a moment to celebrate your accomplishment. All that time carefully following the instructions on this blog paid off!

Next, use the new resources available to you to learn more about our School, our city and the community within Johns Hopkins University.

What new resources? 

Why, the Admitted Student Website!

This site was designed just for you. It includes information about final admissions documents, Admitted Student Visitors Days (register now!), online information sessions, Orientation, housing, transportation, where to get good sushi and more!

The Admitted Student Website is available only to admitted students and a login is required. You should receive login information with your letter offering admission. If you don’t, email us and we’ll make sure you have access.

How do you get there?

The Admitted Student Website is accessed from the Admissions landing page. Choose “login” in the blue Admitted box.

Welcome to Johns Hopkins!

purseOnce the application for admission is submitted, most applicants turn their focus to funding.

It’s important to note that “funding” and “financial aid” can mean many things: scholarships, grants, loans. These are all managed by different offices at the Bloomberg School.

Most institutional scholarships are granted through the academic departments. Typically, there is no separate application. Your application for admission is also reviewed for scholarship eligibility.

The Financial Aid Office provides help with federal and private loans and the Federal Work-Study Program. Admitted students will receive an email with instructions for applying through the School for federal aid.

Tuition and fees are administered by the Office of Student Accounts. Tuition amounts often change from year to year. The most up-to-date tuition information is on the website.

The School is able to fund many of its students, however, there are always those in need of additional funding. The Office of Academic Affairs has developed a Funding Opportunities Database for students looking for external funding. Definitely take a look!
