Public Health is a massively growing field, but the reality is that it stretches into all industries. From architectural designs that improve the community’s health, to the doctor who treats her patient, and the farmer who grows your food, areas of our field are far reaching. Add to that, the Bloomberg School of Public Health is one of the largest schools of Public Health with eight masters’ degrees, three doctoral degrees and ten academic departments. When our Admissions and Departmental staff meet students on the road, it can be difficult to share information with students who ask general questions, although we are happy to help students who are just starting to navigate through out programs.

For that reason, I want to provide you with great questions to ask us, as well as our colleagues at other schools of Public Health. Below is a list of questions that can lead to wonderful conversations and help you learn more about our School and programs.

  1. I’m interested in _________. Do you have something that would help prepare me for a career in ____?
  2. What should I include in my personal statement?
  3. Can you explain the class format at your school?
  4. How can I ensure that your school has the resources and faculty that will help me reach my career goals?
  5. For programs that require a field placement: Where can I complete my field placement? How do I obtain my field placement position?
  6. Are there opportunities for community involvement at your school?
  7. What is student life like at your school?
