Why I Chose Guelph...

“Being a member of the University of Guelph community runs in my family, so I have dreamt of studying here for as long as I can remember. At Guelph you feel valued as a student and the academic environment is highly motivating. I love going to school every day because I know I’m accomplishing something important, while having fun at the same time.”

About My Advisor...

“In the MPH program you do not spend a lot of time with your advisor. However, meetings can be set up at any time to discuss courses or future plans in the public health field. I have found that the relationship allows you the freedom to explore different areas while getting the support you need to succeed. ”

About My Program...

“As an MPH graduate student you spend a lot of time with your fellow classmates. Not only do you complete assignments and projects together, but you go to trivia nights, play dodgeball, and hold study parties. Life as a grad student isn’t all about the academics, it’s about the family you build for yourself away from home.”

My Future Plans...

“The Master's of Public Health program allows for a wide variety of employment options to choose from after graduation. I can work at local, provincial or a federal level to promote health in the population, or I can choose to continue my education. My focus is on infectious diseases so I am planning to become an infectious disease practitioner and eventually go to medical school.”
