I am a third-year joint-degree student studying for a Master of Environmental Science (MESc) degree at F&ES and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree in Environmental Health Sciences at the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH). I also serve on the Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity Committee at F&ES and as a Graduate Assistant Program Coordinator at the Yale Office of LGBTQ Resources.
I can’t believe that it is already the end of recruiting season and I am back in my office here in New Haven. I have had a great few months on the road and was able to meet with amazing prospective students around the country and even abroad. In 15 campus visits, 6 information sessions and 14 graduate school fairs, I was able to talk about the school, our master’s programs and what makes F&ES unique. Throughout this process, I was asked some great questions and want to share some of these with everyone who could not make it out to meet with us. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org

Like a lot of students, when I was thinking about going back to school to get my masters, I was worried about taking “time off” from my career. I’d spent six years in the workplace, and was worried that I would lose momentum and valuable professional connections. Just a few weeks out from finishing up my courses here, I’ve found that this hasn’t been the case at all. In fact, my time at F&ES has been a tremendously advantageous, resource-rich networking experience.
Right off the bat, first years are introduced to staff from the Career Development Office (CDO) at orientation. F&ES has three full-time staff who make themselves available from the start, meeting with…
Hello class of 2019,

I want to take a minute and talk about living in New Haven, Connecticut and tell you how great my home state is! CT is a very diverse state with a lot to offer in regards to food, scenery, city and rural life. We are smack in the middle of Boston and New York City, two great destinations. I have driven through almost all of CT’s counties, cities and towns, each one is very different from the next. Some…
