Master in Global Health

Program description: 

Ohio University offers both a fully online Master's in Global Health (MGH) and a blended option where the second year is completed on campus. Students can customize the program based on their area of interest. Depending on the area students choose to emphasize, the Master of Global Health will prepare students to engage in the global community in a variety of health-focused roles, including as clinicians, researchers, managers, developers and policy consultants. Students will develop a deep understanding of the multiple factors that shape health and healthcare across the world and the necessity of working on interprofessional teams to develop community-based solutions in underserved and resource-poor communities. Through participation in ongoing interprofessional global health projects and research that identify healthcare solutions and build capacity in local communities, students will develop skills in critical thinking and research methodologies as well as the perspective needed to tackle complex issues in resource-poor regions worldwide. The program also offers options for dual degrees in International Development Studies, Communication Development Studies, Latin America Studies, African Studies, Public Health, and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.
