The Master of Science in Global Health program defines a new way to approach training in global health research methodology and prepare future leaders to make an impact. A guiding principle is the recognition that a multidisciplinary and multi-sector approach to health is essential, as health is influenced by a multitude of factors. Through a tailored, flexible curriculum, students develop an understanding of the larger context of global health, while learning from faculty and other students approaching the topic of global health from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The 38-credit curriculum, requiring at least three full-time terms of study, imparts the following: An understanding of key global health concepts and challenges A solid foundation in core methodologies used in global health research Ethics training and considerations applicable across cultures Core concepts to help students evaluate and understand health systems
