"An outstanding degree program! The professors all had real world experience in the subject material being taught which is unheard of in a "brick and mortar" residential school. In most "brick and mortar" universities, you'll find where the teachers have gotten their Bachelor Degrees, Master Degrees, and / or PhDs... but have no real world experience. Real world experience and the ability to convey lessons learned is what sets UIC apart from other brick and mortars... Students actually learn and are not just given arbitrary tests created by some grad assistant who has no clue how the subject material will affect the other students. Good job UIC! I now have a degree that means something not only to me but to my employer as well."

"Pros: I believe that the University of Illinois at Chicago's MPH program is one of the very best. The university is a great place to study public health due to its location in the heart of downtown Chicago, IL, arguably one of the most diverse city's in the country. Additionally, The University of Illinois at Chicago's MPH program contains a large amount of diversity within itself, adding to its appeal due to the fact that the public health sector consists of a vastly diverse group of professionals serving equally diverse communities. Furthermore, the university attracts some of the most highly qualified staff in the nation due to it's position as the public health school with the most research funding per staff member from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Cons: Although the staff consists of highly qualified individuals, the University of Illinois at Chicago's School of Public Health receives more NIH research funding per staff member than any other accredited public health university in the United States. Because of this, some professors can be extremely hard to contact outside of the classroom due to research projects that are their primary reason for working at the university (in contrast to teaching)."

"I began my studies at University of Illinois at Chicago enrolling in their School of Public Health. UIC is one of the top 20 institutions in the field of Public Health. They have quality instruction and and a vast diverse population of students who contribute a great deal with their life experience. I would highly recommend this program to anyone considering Pubic Health. Though I am still in school, I have no doubt I will walk away with a wealth of knowledge in the area of Public Health to be a success."
