How can that be?

It seems if you blink, you find yourself here—at the start of a new school year and a new application season.

Our applications for the 2015-2016 academic year will open mid-August, but you can find information about requirements, deadlines and how to apply on our website now.

VERY IMPORTANT
This year, the Bloomberg School will be using two applications systems:

  • SOPHAS for Schoolwide Master of Public Health programs
  • the Bloomberg School application for all other programs
    (MHA, MHS, MPP, MSPH, ScM, PhD, DrPH, ScD, various certificates, and Residencies - including the dual Residency/MPH) 

We can’t say this enough:

KNOW YOUR PROGRAM, ITS APPLICATON AND APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS!

Choosing the wrong application can seriously delay or even stop your progress through the admission process.

Please carefully review our “How to Apply” and contact us if you have any questions.

Best wishes to you and your application!

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!).

It doesn’t seem possible, but Fall Orientation is less than a month away!

Are you ready?

If you’re a new student starting this fall, check out the Orientation section of the Admitted Student website (login and password required). There you will find a checklist, information on parking, a tentative agenda and much more!

Don’t forget to double check when you’re expected to attend. We break Fall Orientation down by departments and you likely only need report two of the three days.

Fall Orientation August 27-29, 2014
- BMB, EHS, Epi, HBS and IH only August 27
- Biostat, HPM, MH, MMI and PFRH only August 28
- All departments August 29

We look forward to seeing you!
