Events and Campus Visits

Information Sessions

The Admissions office at Boston University School of Public Health invites you to attend one of our information sessions located on the Boston University Medical Campus. Visitors will learn more about public health, the careers it offers, and the admission process at schools of public health. These events are generally held throughout the fall and early winter. Topics include:

  • Public health overview
  • MPH programs of study and career opportunities
  • Application and financial aid
  • Questions and answers

To view the schedule and register for upcoming prospective student events, please view our local events page. Though we are happy to host those interested in all of our programs, the information sessions are geared toward the MPH and dual degree programs. Please contact us directly to learn more about the MS, PhD, and DrPH programs through a more personalized visit.
