"The MSGM program at USC is an ideal program for students interested in public health but do not want the full MPH. Through this program you will have the opportunity to meet leaders in the field of public health and global health, while also preparing an networking with students who are applying or have been accepted to professional schools to pursue MDs, JDs, PhDs, DDS, and other graduate degrees."

"Pros: Close to downtown LA (entertainment, dining,etc) Learn a lot from the program, supportive staff If interested in working with underserved populations, then a lot of options Tram/Bus service is excellent Cons: Campus is unsafe at night Minimal eating options most of which are unhealthy Small library with only one bathroom for 3 floors No nearby grocery/convenience stores Expensive with little to no financial aid for most students Gym is off campus (need to take bus) On campus housing doesn't have kitchens Need a car to do anything away from campus"

"I don't have an extensive list of pros and cos of my graduate program. However, from what I can ascertain thus far, the program lacks scholarships and fellowship opportunities. This is disappointing since USC prides it self as an institution that helps its students fund their education. On the other hand, the administrative staff of my program have been accessible and available to answer questions."

"My program is not listed- Master of Science in Global Medicine. I am unable to select it from the list and the "other" option is not working. I found my education very valuable and felt that I was constantly supported by staff, faculty, and my peers. As this program is targeted primarily for pre-medical or other pre-professional students, I appreciated the reality of the workload. I feel that I am better prepared to take on the next step of my education in pursing a Medical Degree. The most memorable part of the program cannot be attributed to one experience, as I was able to do research on campus, abroad, and become educated on worlds impeding issues in medicine. Furthermore, the Core Principles courses which are the equivalent to the first semester courses at Keck, allowed me to become exposed to what Medical School has to entail. I highly recommend to any student who is looking to pursue a Master's pre-medical school or other pre-professional programs."

"The MPH graduate program was comprehensive and all courses required were relative to one another, which made for various ties as well as the strengthening of information already gathered. The major con of the MPH graduate program was the cost of courses. Another con was the new, not as effective building that houses our MPH courses. However, I am sure that improvements are being made."
