Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2011

The school of public health at emory university provides an excellent foundation for their students. For epidemiologists, the core curriculum is methodologically sound and the elective choices are relatively diverse. The professors care for their students as much as their own personnal research (most have an open door policy). Outside of the classroom, there are ample opportunities for career development through seminars and networking events!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The Masters of Public Health Program at Emory is distinct for a wide array of reasons: (1) you are taught by public health professionals, many of whom are leading experts in their fields, e.g. one of my immediate advisors was cited in the original CDC report describing the initial observance of HIV infection in the United States, before the virus was named and identified. (2) Your role as an MPH student at Emory affords you access to careers at the CDC, the Carter Center, Emory hospital, and Grady Health system. (3) The courses are directly aimed to preparing students for work in the field of public health. (4) Emory is located in Atlanta, which is a great and affordable place for persons in their 20's to attend graduate school, while still having access to plenty of social activities. Since I have enrolled at Emory, I note how the program yields a very high return on investment, but the investment for the program is very pricey: (1) The cost of the degree is very expensive ($17,000+ per semester, not including living expenses, cost of books, computer etc.) (2) The nature of the degree program can be quite competitive, and it may be difficult to maintain a 4.0, with the rigor of the classes. (3) Student diversity, while high, is not entirely representative of all backgrounds/ethnicities.

The public health school at Emory is great if you find the right mentors, courses, and people. Overall, I had great mentors, however, many other students I knew were very dissatisfied with the classroom experience. There was too much busy work at times, professors that were not very invested in teaching, and a lack of critical discussion or skills focused learning in several departments and classes. I loved my department, Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, and felt like a peer with my professors, advisors, and mentors. However, the classes outside of my department were not very interesting and there were too many required courses to take. Great networking and job opportunities with organizations based in Atlanta such as CARE, CDC, American Cancer Society, The Carter Center, several consulting firms and non-profits, but many of the outside of the classroom experiences were more valuable. Overall though, great friends and peers at school and I would recommend the school but only for the epidemiology, behavioral sciences and health education, and health policy and management departments/tracks.

The Emory University Rollins School of Public Health is the place to be if you're looking for a career in public health. With the CDC literally next door, you couldn't be in a better place as far as networking with the stars in the field is concerned. The professors are experts in their field and also extremely approachable and interested in working with students, and the classes are directly useful to your future career. Add to that, Atlanta has pretty perfect weather and is very affordable!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Emory University is a great school. The diversity and acceptance of so many different cultures, ethnicities, etc. is praiseworthy. The Public Health program here is widely revered and very prestigious. It's a fantastic school with a lot of resources, but unfortunately, you must be very wealthy or plan on going into a great deal of debt if you want to pursue your graduate degree here, as Emory University does not offer many financial aid options to graduates.

Emory provides a great learning environment. The best part of Emory is being in the in a center for Public Health with unbeatable opportunities: from the CDC next door to Atlanta based organizations such as CARE and the Carter Center. The faculty are also all very well connected and eager to help students get involved.

Emory University is the best place to pursue a Master's degree in Public Health. With its prime location in Atlanta, GA, right next to the CDC, Emory University provides students with endless opportunities to gain real, relevant work experience; with a vast network of Emory University alumni; and access to top-notch professors and researchers in the field of public health. If you want to earn your graduate degree in public health, Emory University is your best choice.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Emory Rollins is a great Public Health graduate program for those interested in global health. The coursework is relevant and the network that Emory has is outstanding. The close location and relationship with the CDC is also a major draw. However, Emory's main focus is research, so this might not be an appropriate school for those on the more practical side of Public Health.
