Global Public Health

As with all educational programs in the School of Public Health, our Global Public Health ScM students learn public health by doing public health. Course work comes alive during an international fieldwork experience that fosters deep engagement and understanding of a global public health location. Academic and hands-on experiences culminate with a thesis project. Most full-time students complete the degree in two years, fulfilling the fieldwork requirement during the summer between academic years 1 and 2. The degree may be completed on a part-time basis.

  • 12 courses, including 9 required courses and 3 electives
  • 8-week international fieldwork experience
  • Thesis project
