Hi all,

This is the first time using this service so bear with me.

I am trying to do a public health-related master's degree right out of undergrad and need some help and expertise.

I've gotten into the following programs

MPH- Imperial College London
MPH- Univeristy of Edinburgh
MPH- King's College London
Master of Health Security- University of Sydney
MS Biohazardous Threat Agents/Emerging Infectious Disease Control- Georgetown
MS Global Health- Georgetown

Still Waiting to Hear From

Msc Control of Infectious Diseases- London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)
Msc Global Health- London School of Economics
Msc Population Health- University College London

I don't think that this Master's program will be my last degree but I also don't feel like I want to start working immediately (Bachelor's Degree is in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology) as much of the jobs that I qualify for are just lab research technicians which isn't my forte.

Basically I'm having a very hard time deciding between these programs but I am leaning towards MPH at Imperial or the Biohazard program at Georgetown. I am wondering if anyone else has experience with these programs or just general suggestions. Thank you all!
