Opportunities within the field of global health are expanding as the world becomes more interconnected. Recognizing that many global health problems stem from economic, social, environmental, political, and health care inequalities, Duke has designed strong programs in global health education across the university. The Master of Science in Global Health emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, a research experience, and mentorship from expert faculty. We prepare our graduates to make an impact in the reduction of health disparities.

In this program you will develop an understanding of the most important global health concepts and challenges. You will gain a solid foundation in global health research methods, with a focus on ethics and working in cross-cultural settings. And you will learn to understand, evaluate and compare health systems from around the world.

  • An understanding of key global health concepts and challenges
