UMN offers great research experience and many faculty members are eager to assist students in publishing, finishing their degree and moving onto their next degree/postdoc/position. The SPH is somewhat disjointed though, with the offices for some being on the West Bank and classes and other student’s offices on the East bank. The campus has convenient public transit, but parking options are expensive or inconveniently located.
Great libraries and multiple options for collaboration and interdisciplinary work. The key is getting paired with a great mentor.
My rating is solely based on the classroom setting as I also work here. But the amount of educational opportunities here are astounding and so far the faculty have been amazing for my program. I was able to pursue a Masters degree program made for working professionals due to a flexible curriculum that can be tailored to my career goals while I worked full-time here to support my family. Not to mention that if you work here for 30 hours or more, you are eligible for an employee scholarship that will cover 75% of your tuition towards college if it is your second degree and 100% if it is your first degree. This is a great deal with such high debt to income ratios for graduating students. There are a number of social groups on campus as well for various interests as well as leadership opportunities such as serving on student senate committees. If you prefer a large campus this is the place and has beautiful architecture and the snowy winters only enhance it.
