Welcome visitors!Are you considering applying to the Bloomberg School for fall 2016? Not sure?

Come visit us!

Tour the Bloomberg School of Public Health

Guided tours are typically scheduled every other Friday. These tours are informal, conducted by admissions staff and are a great introduction to our School and community.

Registration is required!   

If you can’t make a guided tour, self-guided walking tours are also available.

Open House

Our annual Open House has been scheduled for Friday, October 9, 2015. Come visit with representatives from our ten academic departments, as well as the MPH and MBE program offices. You’ll learn about academic offerings, meet student affairs representatives and take a guided tour.

Registration is required and will open later this summer. A tentative agenda may be found online.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Application Deadline AlertHeads up! It’s the final application deadline of the 2015-2016 application cycle!



Application deadlines vary by program: know your program, its applicationrequirements and deadline. School policy requires your online application and supporting materials (official transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, etc.) to be submitted before or on the application deadline. 

If you’ve missed the deadline for your program of interest, hang in there. The application for 2016-2017 opens later this summer and we’ll be sharing tips and info soon!

Compass for OrientationThis is always a strange time of year in admissions.

Last week, we helped with Convocation. This week, we’re processing some of the last applications for 2015-2016. Next month, we’ll be welcoming full-time MPH students at Orientation! Online/part-time MPH students arrive this weekend!

Time flies when you work in admissions.

Are you coming?

Orientation is mandatory for incoming students. The event next month (June 29-30) is for full-time MPH students only. A separate event is held for those newly enrolled in departmental degrees in the fall.

Are you ready?

A checklist for new MPH students (login and password required) of things to do now, things to do at Orientation, as well as a few frequently asked questions may be found on the Admitted Student website. We encourage you to take a look and prepare to be oriented!

See you soon!

Memorial DayJohns Hopkins University – including the Bloomberg School Admissions Services - is closed today.

Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend.

Earlier this week, I posted a reminder about upcoming deadlines. Did you notice anything new?

We have a new degree program!

Master of Bioethics

The Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and the Bloomberg School are working together to offer a Master of Bioethics or MBE.

The MBE is an interdisciplinary, cross-divisional graduate program preparing students from diverse individual and professional backgrounds for the bioethics challenges of professional and civic life.

Full- and part-time formats are available.

More information, including contacts, sample curriculum and application may be found online.

The MBE program is accepting applications for fall 2015 NOW!
