"Drexel University is a good university with an large amount of resources and connections. The class sizes in the beginning are around 150-200 students. Professors do have multiple TA per class that will help you succeed . It is really up to the student to do well and seek out resources and opportunities. The overall diversity in my class was great, with an majority of foreign exchange students. Overall, other than the graduate housing my experience has been good."

"Drexels Community Health and Prevention program allows its students the opportunity to gain experience in research and provides a solid understanding of the fundamentals of public health by immersing students in the core disciplines of public health with an emphasis on practice, policy and community engagement. The school has deep relationships with both the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health as well as The Regional CMS/SAMHSA offices that are based in Philly which students can apply to intern. The program goals of helping students learn through real life work experiences is invaluable. Drexels program has a commitment to producing public health experts equipped to take on the challenges specific to communities. On a systems level, Drexel is involved with hospital systems and lots of FQHCs and organizations such as Delaware Valley Community Health, YMCA, and Project HOME - all of which specifically focus on urban health issues. The Dean of the school has done some seminal research into the effects of place/environment on health. Drexel allows students to learn about health policy and build on their commitment to public health at a high level. The focus on social determinants of health and learning to create, implement, and evaluate interventions to target health disparities is a program that aims to improve the quality of life for its residents in the community. Drexels stands out to me as a school that speaks of the need to produce alumni that are well rounded and culturally competent."

"Getting a fine education from a fine university has the ability to shape your personality, gives you an opportunity to mold to a finer status. Being so involved in the Public Health Master's Program opens many doors to the healthcare field. On the other hand, it takes a lot of determination and dedication to continue and go on with it. The more you work hard to achieve it, the more it becomes worth it and you find it was what you wanted all along."

"The Drexel University Public Health program is a great program that emphasizes a hands-on approach that allows students to utilize what they've learned in the classroom in a real-world setting. Based in Center City, Philadelphia, students have no trouble finding internship and practicum opportunities in a diverse and rich city like Philly. I am really glad I came to Drexel because as a future public health professional, I know that experiences working outside the classroom are crucial in developing my educational and career goals."
