LalaeSehrai Posted June 23, 2019 Share Posted June 23, 2019 I'm interested in applying to public health/urban studies programs. My application for urban studies is fairly strong as I'll have work and volunteer experience in a foreign country. I'm worried about my MPH application as I don't believe my application is as strong. I want to apply to Health/Social Behavior concentrations but my undergrad is not related (Political Science/Public Policy with almost no health courses) nor is my formal work experience (urban research). However, I have done freelance journalism that relates to public health, specifically things that fall under Health/Social Behavior topics (air pollution, health disparities across class/ethnicity, health justice). By the time I apply, I'll have over a year of experience writing about it (irregularly, so perhaps around 6-8 articles) for local and regional newspapers/online publications. Do you think that that is enough? My top-choice program is Berkeley and I'm overall looking at schools in that tier. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
