Last Monday Boston University’s school of Public Health payed a visit to campus. A representative was here to talk to students about future opportunities at the school.
Having recently declared my independent major in public health, I went to the event to learn more about what I can do after graduating Bryn Mawr.
The representative talked about what you could do with a degree in Public Health an helped me figure out what my options are. After that event, I think my interests tend to lie in community health/wellbeing, health communication, and health services areas. There are so many different things you can do with public health, but I am generally interested in people-centered work and addressing health disparities.
I also learned about other degree options besides a masters in public health. I’ll continue to look into a masters in health services and systems research, a masters in public health nutrition, and even doctoral programs in public health.
Going to this event reminded me of my junior and senior year of high school when I was researching colleges and falling in love with Bryn Mawr. I loved that time because I was able to do a lot of organizing and planning, which I have a weird fascination with for some reason. It also makes me super excited to start planning towards my future for after Bryn Mawr.
Oh, the places we’ll go!
