On September 10 and 11, SOPHAS members will participate in a virtual graduate school fair for prospective students and advisors. The fair will be conducted entirely online, and participants will have the opportunity to chat live with admissions officers and program chairs, review materials about specific degree programs, and upload resumes to share with representatives of SOPHAS members and SOPHAS staff. The event is free for prospective students and advisors.
The virtual exhibits typically host over 1,000 prospective students from 48 states and over 150 countries across the world. At a recent virtual fair, 48 percent of attendees were not currently enrolled in a degree program while the other participants were currently enrolled in bachelor, master’s, doctorate, and post-doctorate studies. Eighty-two percent of the attendees were interested in starting a degree program in the coming year.
Over 50 participating SOPHAS schools and programs are registered to exhibit. As well, to assist with the attendees’ specific questions about the SOPHAS application process, the fair will feature a virtual booth manned by SOPHAS representatives and a “chat with a current MPH student” to field questions about their experiences as a public health student.
