The MPH degree in 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, the program enables graduates to contribute to a better quality of life for all people—especially those who are vulnerable, underserved, marginalized, and disadvantaged. The program’s 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.
The 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; and public health enterprises and public health practice organizations.
Recent advances in science, technology, and communications have created a rapidly shrinking planet--a global village. The Department of Global Health prepares graduates who are technically competent and skilled in planning, implementing, and evaluating sustainable health and development programs. The program focuses on an experiential model of learning, preparing students to serve vulnerable populations in developing and developed countries.
