The MPH program in International Health and Sustainable Development (ISHD) at Tulane University is designed to make graduates attractive for employment at international non-governmental organizations, public private partnerships, and non-profit research and consultancy firms.


About this Degree

The International Health and Sustainable Development curriculum offers a balance between structure and flexibility so that students can fulfill their unique academic needs with coursework that can adapt to important emerging areas in the field. The hallmark of the program is advanced skills in monitoring and evaluation in a global context. In addition, part of the MPH education in IHSD is to familiarize students into the world of health interventions in LMICs, which is very different than the U.S. context.

The curriculum and applied learning opportunities draw upon Tulane University's extensive overseas research, technical assistance work, and nearly four decades of experience in providing leadership training in international health to students from around the world. Coursework and learning opportunities are designed to emphasize the importance of cultural, social and behavioral factors influencing health.
