Young woman using computerTravel can be expensive on a student’s budget. We understand that.

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.

2015-2016 Academic ProspectusIt’s finally here!

On Monday, we received the end product of six month’s work:
the 2015-2016 Academic Prospectus!

This 70-page book provides an overview of our School – its history, departments and academic programs.

We distribute the Prospectus at recruitment events across the country. We provide them to public health advisers. And we send them to those who request it using our Prospectus Request Form.

For those who prefer things electronically, a pdf is also available on our website.

Happy reading!

questionIt’s time for another edition in our monthly series: “What You’re Asking.”

Here’s how it works: I scope out emails sent to jhsph.admiss@jhu.edu and tally the most frequently asked questions. I then answer a couple of the most popular questions here on this blog.

Ready? Here we go!

I’m really interested in your PhD program in epidemiology/biostatistics/health policy/human nutrition/etc. How can I learn more?

Once you’ve identified a program of interest, there are a number of resources at your disposal.

  • Visit the department’s website
    Each of our ten academic departments offer the PhD and all have robust websites. Most provide detailed information on research areas, program goals, course requirements, and even potential funding resources.
  • Contact your department’s academic coordinator
    Academic coordinators know their department inside out. They’re able to answer many of your detailed program questions as well as connect you with additional resources within their program. The contact information for academic coordinators is typically listed on the website or you can email jhsph.admiss@jhu.edu for help.
  • Browse the department’s faculty
    You may search our faculty directory by name, department or keyword. You’re not required to have a faculty mentor in place at the time of application, but it’s always a good idea to make sure there are folks in your department whose research interests match yours.
  • Connect with current students
    Through the appropriate academic coordinator or the student websites, connect with fellow students or alumni. Your peers are a great resource – before, during and after your Hopkins experience.

When is the application deadline for the program in epidemiology/biostatistics/health policy/human nutrition/etc.?

We have a number of application deadlines and they vary by department, degree and sometimes by degree track. We will be posting the deadline chart for applications to the 2015-2016 academic year August 1 (the day after tomorrow!).
