It’s time for another edition in our monthly series: “What You’re Asking.”
Here’s how it works: I scope out emails sent to email@example.com and tally the most frequently asked questions. I then answer a couple of the most popular questions here.
This month’s tally revealed that we have come full circle in the application process. We in admissions are preparing to welcome new students to orientation, but many of you are just beginning this process. You’re asking:
I’ve recently discovered the field of public health and want to learn more, where do I start?
I’ve done my best to share as many resources as I can on this blog, but there are many more. Here are a few to get you started
Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH)
ASPPH has recently reworked their website to include a “Discover” section defining public health, describing its impact and presenting profiles of current and past students.
The JHSPH website, provides a wonderful snapshot of the amazing work our students and faculty do in public health.
- What is Public Health from the perspective of the CDC Foundation
What degrees do you offer?
The Bloomberg School offers nine public health graduate degrees. These degrees include our Schoolwide Master of Public Health (MPH) as well as a plethora of degrees offered by ten academic departments!
With so many degrees and opportunities, the resulting alphabet soup can be confusing. So, make use of the resources above, thoroughly review our website, narrow your interests and then contact the academic coordinator for the program that truly calls to you.
If you have trouble locating a contact or have a question, we’re here to help!
Best wishes to you on your public health journey!
