questions?We are long overdue for a post in our (mostly) monthly series, “What You’re Asking.” In this series, I scope out emails sent to and tally the most frequently asked questions. I then answer the most popular questions here on the blog.

This month our two questions are on opposite ends of the admissions timeline.

Can you tell me more about your public health graduate programs?

The Bloomberg School offers TEN (!) public health graduate degrees.  These degrees include our Schoolwide Master of Public Health (MPH), the Master of Bioethics offered in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, and eight departmental degrees focused within one of 43 study areas. Also available are combined degrees, certificates, and various non-degree opportunities.

With so many options, we strongly encourage prospective students to take some time exploring the broad public health spectrum covered by our School.

I’m an admitted student and received an email about submitting final transcripts. What is that?

Did you apply while completing your final year of undergraduate studies? Perhaps there were pre-requisite courses you agreed to complete before matriculating. Or maybe you had some very special circumstances and your program of interest agreed to review your application without official academic records.

Regardless of which of the above applies to you, we are required to have final official transcripts on file for all incoming students. Details may be found on the Admitted Student Website (login and password required) or feel free to contact us.
