Admissions Blog

Date: Jul 2015

If you’re one of our beloved regular readers, you might have noticed that our posts haven’t been as frequent lately. That’s in part due to the season, but it’s mainly due to the production of the Academic Prospectus.

The new Prospectus is almost here! I have the proofs on my desk.

It’s lovely, if I do say so myself.

You may request a copy of the 2016-2017 Academic Prospectus online. A pdf version will be posted for your online viewing shortly.

We know you can’t wait!

HousekeepingAs we transition from the end of one application cycle to the beginning of the next, here are a few policy reminders and blog tips:

General Reminders

We hope you find the information on our blog useful and maybe even a little entertaining, but remember that policies change over time. Make sure your information is from a current post. To help with this, notice that all deadline reminders and application tips for the current admissions cycle are tagged “2016-2017 cycle.”

If you’re ever in doubt, the latest deadlines,  and policies may always be found on the regular admissions website. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us.

Thank you for reading, following and commenting on the Admissions Blog!

Student talking to Admissions repAs we’ve mentioned before, the first step in the application process is to know your program. What do we mean by that?

Public health is a broad field that encompasses everything from molecular biology to policy to statistics to maternal health. The disciplines seem countless and often overlap. Here at the Bloomberg School, your application, application requirements and deadlines can vary based on which degree and discipline you choose.

What’s a prospective student to do?

Immerse yourself in public health. Read a feature story on our website. Subscribe to Global Health NOW and our award-winning magazine. Discover your passion and find a degree that will help you reach your goals.

Still overwhelmed? COME TALK TO US!

Tell us what it is you want to do and we should be able to direct you to one or two programs that fit your needs.

Our recruitment season begins gradually this month, but keep an eye on our calendar. We'll be adding new events through the fall. We may be in your area soon!
