Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

Well suited for those who work 9-5. All graduate classes scheduled in the evening. Open to part-time students, though advising is better if you're a full-time student.

Great program, good opportunities since it's in DC! Get to know your professors as they are very connected and will open doors for you if you let them! Public Health Communication and Marketing is especially good at GWU.

GWU provides a quality education and is well respected. I took classes at night while I worked full-time. All of my classes were online and I greatly appreciated that flexibility. They do not offer too much financial support. They are somewhat flexible with class choice within curriculum.

I really enjoyed studying public health at GWU. Classes are rigorous and require a lot of outside study and class prep, but you are very well prepared to be a successful professional in public health. Due to the fact that we are in DC, students have the opportunity (and are encouraged) to attend Senate hearings, Supreme Court cases, and events at Smithsonians and government facilities that pertain to public health. Students are encouraged to do internships at the premier agencies and organizations in DC. This degree will not only challenge you but support you and teach you how to be a leader within the public health community. I am graduating this coming May and feel extremely prepared for any job or higher education in the public health arena that comes my way.

Graduation Year: 2019

George Washington University and the Milken Institute School of Public Health have a reputation of being one of the top, accredited, Schools of Public Health as ranked by many reliable sources (US News and World Reports, College rankings, mba-healthcare-management.com, bestcolleges.com etc.). Other positive attributes include: The ability to accomplish my goal of obtaining a Masters in Public Health online while still maintaining my full-time employment status; that my professional education and experience are taken into consideration; and because of its location in the mega of healthcare reform - Washington DC, Milken Institute School of Public Health has some of the best experts in the field; instructors who will share their knowledge and experience in my education and training is a true honor and privilege.

Worried about the quality of education in an online program? I was. MPH@GW is amazingly different! You are given the tools to succeed and even get in class sessions and professors who know you and are committed to your success. I highly recommend this program.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Earning a master's degree is a critical next step toward achieving my short-and long-term career goals.I am pursuing a Master of Public Health (MPH) with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health from the George Washington University. I applied to the Milken Institute School of Public Health because of its high-caliber of faculty, robust academic curriculum and the strong commitment to prevention and community health. I hope to work with faculty in my department whose research are aligned with my interests in adolescent risk behaviors and teen pregnancy, racial and ethnic health disparities and maternal and child health. I firmly believe that the MPH program at the George Washington University will equip me with the technical knowledge, analytical and management skills needed to become an effective public health leader. After graduate school, I will obtain a Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Technical Advisor position and serve as a board member for a community health organization. I seek to dismantle the social structures that inhibit racial and ethnic minorities from achieving optimal health and implement proven interventions that will save the lives of women, infants, and children in sub-Saharan Africa. My long-term career goal is to work as a senior advisor at a private foundation or a government agency where I can provide strategic guidance, leadership, and expertise on domestic and global public health issues.
