Most of you already know that I've applied to Penn State's MPS in HLS. The MPS in HLS has concentrations in Public Health Preparedness, AgBio, Geospatial intelligence, etc. The path I've recently become interested in is the Public health preparedness option--- Penn State | Online Master of Professional Studies in Homeland Security | Public Health Preparedness even though I've applied to the AgBio option. Anyway I was comparing the two programs and I find the St. Louis program very interesting as well. It's located here--> Center for the Study of Bioterrorism - Saint Louis University,-School of Public Health I may be considering St. Louis as well now because I like how they include Biosecurity and Disaster Preparedness. Both schools are highly ranked (Penn State 47th...St. Louis 88th...National rankings according to US World and News). Penn State beats St. Louis in name recognition or it does at least where I'm located. The costs are similar (pretty high) with Penn State being $24,500 and St. Louis being $28,000. I was just curious what your thoughts were in a school to school comparison. These may be my last options unless you guys know of a cheaper option from a school that has at least some degree of name recognition. Thanks!
