The MSGM program at USC is an ideal program for students interested in public health but do not want the full MPH. Through this program you will have the opportunity to meet leaders in the field of public health and global health, while also preparing an networking with students who are applying or have been accepted to professional schools to pursue MDs, JDs, PhDs, DDS, and other graduate degrees.

The Online MPH program at the University of Southern California is built for busy adults. Even though the class is online, the program is as rigorous and dense as on-campus courses. The constant interaction via course discussion boards and virtual classes help bridge the connection between you and your classmates. The professors and their TAs also make themselves readily available for guidance and support.

The University of Southern California online Masters of Public Health program has been an amazing experience in furthering my career as a health professional. I am hundreds of miles away from the physical campus however I have still had access to endless resources and networking opportunities throughout the program. The faculty are all amazing and passionate to help students truly succeed in their future careers. I thoroughly enjoyed my educational experience with USC and would absolutely recommend it to anyone interested.

Pros: Close to downtown LA (entertainment, dining,etc) Learn a lot from the program, supportive staff If interested in working with underserved populations, then a lot of options Tram/Bus service is excellent Cons: Campus is unsafe at night Minimal eating options most of which are unhealthy Small library with only one bathroom for 3 floors No nearby grocery/convenience stores Expensive with little to no financial aid for most students Gym is off campus (need to take bus) On campus housing doesn't have kitchens Need a car to do anything away from campus

I am enrolled in the Global Medicine Program at USC. The faculty are very passionate about the topics they teach and make sure that we, as students, are passionate about it as well. The entire USC community is very proud of our school and everyone strives to do well and represent USC. The only cons I can think of is that USC is located in unsafe neighborhood in Los Angeles and because it is a private university, the tuition is very expensive. Nonetheless, I believe my money is being used well since I believe the name will help me find a career.

The USC Online MPH program is a great program that allows students to work full time and get a quality education. It is surprisingly very collaborative and students are able to interact and work together on projects.

I don't have an extensive list of pros and cos of my graduate program. However, from what I can ascertain thus far, the program lacks scholarships and fellowship opportunities. This is disappointing since USC prides it self as an institution that helps its students fund their education. On the other hand, the administrative staff of my program have been accessible and available to answer questions.
