Program Description:

The DKU Master of Science in Global Health is a new approach to learning about how to prevent disease; the social, economic, political and environmental causes of disease; and effective strategies to increase equity among the world’s rich and the poor. Global health is complex and requires the involvement of experts from multiple and diverse disciplines. In this program students develop an understanding of the most important global health concepts and challenges. The interdisciplinary curriculum provides a solid foundation in global health research methods and allows students to design and implement their own research project in the field. Graduates of this program will receive a Master of Science degree from Duke University. MSc-GH students have a variety of disciplinary backgrounds including medicine, public health, law, economics, policy, business and more. The DKU Master of Science in Global Health is modeled after the highly successful program pioneered at Duke University. In its fifth year, the MSc-GH at Duke has trained nearly 100 global health leaders who now hold rewarding positions with academic, non-governmental and corporate organizations.
