Master of Public Health in Global Health
Upon completion of the Global Health MPH Program a graduate is able to practice global health with a transformational development worldview, seeking positive change in the whole of human life materially, physically, socially, psychologically and spiritually. The M.P.H. degree in global health prepares global health practitioners who are technically competent and cross-culturally skilled to create and manage sustainable health and development programs in diverse settings and populations.
The Program uses an experiential, model of learning that builds on The Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals adapted to global and local underserved environments. The program's global and local faculty and organizational resources and connections afford a broad spectrum of options for students to learn and practice global and local public health. The program prepares practitioners who work in non-governmental, civil society organizations, faith-based, and community-based organizations; county and state health departments; private foundations; and public health enterprises and public health practice organizations. Graduates also find positions in UN, international and multilateral organizations, such as the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, and US Government organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Those with prior field experience and additional language/s proficiency (for example, French or Spanish) generally have advantages for these positions.
