Description:
The Master’s of Global Health prepares committed professionals who are both technically competent and cross-culturally skilled in creating and facilitating sustainable health and development programs in diverse settings and populations. Utilizing an experiential, evidence-based model of learning while building on the global health competencies defined in the model developed by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health in 2011—our program enables graduates to contribute to a better quality of life for all people—especially those who are vulnerable, underserved, marginalized, and disadvantaged. Our extensive network of global and local faculty and organizational resources affords a broad spectrum of options for students to learn and practice the “art and science” of this exciting discipline. Our program prepares career professionals who work in the nonprofit, relief, and development sectors. Graduates of the program may qualify for positions in nongovernmental, faith-based, and community- based organizations; county, state, and national health departments, private foundations, public health enterprises, and public health practice organizations. Graduates also find positions in government and transnational organizations, such as the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and national assistance organizations like the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Further academic training is also an option for graduates interested in teaching and research. Those with prior field experience and additional language/s proficiency (for example, French or Spanish) are generally given preference both during student admission and later when applying for jobs.
