Admissions Blog

Date: Sep 2015

child holding globeEarlier this month our staff answered questions in a virtual chat. Some participating students knew exactly which degree they were interested in and what they wanted to do with it. Others were a little unsure of “public health” and what opportunities exist in the discipline.

It’s that last group of students I want to help today.

Public health is a broad field encompassing everything from the etymology of disease to health promotion, the molecular structure of viruses to health care delivery.  What you study and where you go after graduation is largely up to you!

Below are some resources for learning more about public health in general and the Bloomberg School specifically.

I hope this helps!

Flying Out Over the BayWhere will Admissions representatives be this month?

It may be easier to ask where we won’t be! Come chat with us in Washington, Berkeley, Baltimore, Chicago, Huntsville, St. Paul, Montgomery, Davis, Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New Orleans or at a host of other venues.

Check out our recruitment calendar to see where we’ll be when.

Hope to see you soon!

Our admissions blog is three years old today! Happy Birthday!

That’s three years of application tips, deadline alerts, “what you’re asking,” event reminders and a few really bad jokes by yours truly (you know you laughed anyway).

It’s a special day for many reasons. Today is also my last day as the voice of the Admissions Blog. I’ve scheduled a few posts over the next month and I’m leaving you in really good hands. I’m certain there will be many good posts in yours and the Admissions Blog’s future.

So long. Farewell. And happy Admissions Blog reading!

You can still get your questions answered by participating in one of our Virtual Information Sessions!

There are three scheduled this fall and the first – “The Ins and Outs of Applying to the Bloomberg School” – will be held this Friday, September 25 at 12 noon (Eastern).

Instructions for participating in the chat may be found on our website.

Hope to “see” you there!
