The Master of Arts in Global Health and Society (GHS) provides a comprehensive framework of global health that underscores the sociopolitical, economic, and geographic factors that, in addition to biomedical factors, impact health conditions of various countries and populations throughout the world. The GHS program is 36 credits, and offers a range of interdisciplinary courses that examine the emerging challenges to human health and security, the differential access and adoption of evidence-based health policies and practices, and how these interventions translate from international to community scales. Our students gain the social science knowledge and methodologies to integrate stakeholders and researchers in the design, implementation, interpretation of community-based participatory studies. Additionally, graduates of our program acquire skills in leadership and advocacy, and combined with a deep understanding of policy and governance, are prepared to assist private, government, non-profit, and for-profit organizations formulate new global and community health strategies.
There are three tracks in the GHS program:
- Global Health General
- Policy, Governance and Advocacy
- Community-Based Participatory Research, Monitoring and Evaluation (CBPR)
