Hi. What is the difference between the part time Barcelona program and Baltimore?

Does an advanced chemistry class count as the health-related science course? Thank you!

Am I understanding that if you are graduating from undergraduate in the spring to begin the MPH program in the Fall 2021, does this mean we must have that health related work experience, or no?

27:39
?
Mariah Francis
27:55

Beyond the 2 year work requirement for the MPH and program length, could you explain a little bit about the differences MPH and MSPH and who would make a good candidate for these programs? Thank you so much!
Mariah Francis
52:23
Can we unmute ?
Caroline Bennett
52:43
And, if one's personal statement is a bit longer than the recommended length based on needing to explain poor grades and a career shift - does the admissions committee view this as a red flag? thank you!
