Master of Science in Global Health (M.Sc.)
The Master of Science in Global Health is a full-time, 12-month program consisting of three terms. During the fall and winter terms, McMaster and Maastricht collectively offer two core courses—Global Health Foundations I and II—in which students work in (virtual) online transcontinental groups. The structure of Foundations I and II creates a challenging and stimulating environment for learning in innovative ways that reflect today's globalized context. In addition to students completing core courses in the fall, course-based students select one of the program's three specialization fields during the winter term: Globalization and Development, Global Health Management, or Global Diseases. Two separate fields are also offered at Maastricht University. In the summer term, students attend a Learning Symposium at Manipal University in India. Students choosing to complete a thesis may extend into the fall and winter terms of the second year to complete their research.
