Welcoming our first MPH students

News

  • Faculty profiles  We are adding new faculty pages which give some idea of the breadth of skills and depth of experience our faculty offer.  This should be helpful in selecting an advisor, and in planning practicum and thesis work.

 

  • Washington, DC Idealist Graduate Fair – October 28  We will be meeting with potential applicants at the Idealist.org graduate fair in Washington, D.C. from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. on October 28.  The fair is being held in Hall C of the Washington, D.C. Convention Center (801 Mt Vernon Pl NW Washington, DC, 20001).  The event is free and no registration is required to attend.   Feel free to stop by to discuss our program and various study concentrations.  In addition, we would be happy to meet with any students in the area before or after the fair.  Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, or if you would like to set up an appointment to meet.

 

  • New Spring Admission Deadline – October 31.  We have received a number of inquiries regarding admission for Spring Term.  A Fall Term start is most advisable as some foundation courses such as epidemiology and biostatistics courses are offered that term, yet for those pursuing the MPH in Global & Community Health, a January start can be workable.  In contrast, those pursuing the MPH in Research, Evaluation and Policy confront course sequencing problems beginning study at that time.  Such students will be admitted in January only in special circumstances, such as when one has already undertaken substantial related coursework, or is planning an extended study plan of longer than four semesters.  Please contact us for pre-admission advising if we may assist in your study planning.
