In the 21st century, continued improvements in the health and development of the world’s societies will depend on our response to the challenges of poverty, disease, and inequity. Emerging and reemerging killers like HIV/AIDS, malaria, or multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, as well as the more subtle pandemics of gender-based violence, traffic accidents, and mental illness challenge global public health in profound ways. The Master of Public Health with a concentration in Global Health provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to work effectively in the practice of global health, both in overseas settings and in US-based global health organizations. Students have the flexibility to combine coursework in economics, financial management, policy analysis, and infectious and chronic disease with comparative studies addressing the social and cultural issues that impact health internationally. Outside of the classroom, students build professional skills through departmental research opportunities and global field practicums. Graduates are equipped to assume careers in relief, development, consulting, research, and government both domestically and abroad, or to pursue further study.
