When I think of what Career Services does for our students, I usually think automatically of the Career Fair. And while the Career Fair is the main event each year, (you can read my blog about last year’s fair here), the Office of Career Services does far more.

In addition to meeting one on one with students for career counseling, Career Services runs events and workshops throughout the year to provide career advice and opportunities to connect with employers. From tips on how to succeed when networking, how to arrange your resume and CV, preparing for interviews and more, Career Services offer a wide array of resources to help students and alumni be successful.

Career Services also maintains a database of Public Health jobs around the world exclusively for students and alumni. JHSPHConnect is a central recourse for students. In addition, through Passport Connect, students and alumni looking for jobs specifically outside of the US have access to tools for what is expected in those countries. In essence, it’s a globally minded job resource for our students and their families as they look for global jobs.

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!

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!
