Online Master of Science in Global Health

The Master of Science in Global Health is an online program designed to empower graduates with the tools and skills needed to address global health challenges. Students complete 30 credits which can be completed in one year, including nine core courses (27 credits) focusing on core competencies in management, ethics, evidence-based practice, globalization of health and healthcare, strategic analysis, capacity strengthening, collaboration and communication.

Students are invited to participate in an existing global course in one of nine countries, and/or an independent elective at a location of their choice for an additional 3 credits.
