Boston University as a lot to offer for its students along with the faculty. The school itself is reputable and resourceful. I enjoyed my time at Boston University.

BU's School of Public Health offers a great graduate program that helps to prepare you for a career in public health. The certificate system allows for you to gain multiple sets of skills, and able to handle real world issues. Every class I've taken at this school has in some way held value for me, even if it did not particularly contribute to my concentration. There's always something to learn that is interesting and relevant to health care today. The epidemiology and biostatistics programs in particular help you to develop concrete skills in research and data analysis.

The HEM program is a great program for those students which want to get the degree at a short term. You can be a part-time and full-time student BOTH. The teachers and the technology for class are perfect.

Pros- nationally ranked program, great professors, great research opportunities, great location. Cons- It is ridiculously expensive, and makes me anxious about whether it is worth the money.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2010

I received my MPH with a concentration in epidemiology. My biggest complaint about BU's MPH program is its lack of faculty and program support. My assigned faculty advisor left after my first semester and I never was given another one. I also found the career services severely lacking. I received very minimal help with resume and cover letter prep and job hunting. BU is very expensive and I felt that the classes were too large and the program too big to provide the type of mentorship and guidance I was expecting for such an expensive school. Please remember this is just my experience and I know others who really enjoyed the program.

BUPSH is a great school but the location is not the best. I've had great professors and courses so far. It's an overall great environment to be completing graduate level courses.

I am currently pursuing a Master's of Public Health degree from Boston University. This program offers an incredible opportunity for experience & knowledge gain. The faculty are the best I've ever experienced; they're all highly regarded in their respective fields and do all that they can to help their students. Outside of the classroom, BUSPH, while located in Boston, provides an incredible amount of opportunity for gaining experience. Completion of the degree requires that students partake in a practicum, which is very easy to come by in this hub for public health. I am so happy that I decided to apply to BU, and that they accepted me! The best decision I have made in my life to date. BUSPH is an awesome program, however, it's very expensive. GraduatePrograms.com offers an incredible amount of information for curious people interested in graduate programs. A scholarship from this fantastic tool would greatly help my financial needs while continuing to remind me the well-rounded support they provide graduate students!
