Global Health addresses some of the most important and novel issues in 21st-century health. Government agencies and major foundations are investing billions to combat largely treatable chronic diseases that claim far too many lives in low- and middle-income countries. Combined with continued strong job growth in the broader healthcare industry — and dynamic changes in population growth and the global economy — there could not be a better time to consider graduate study in global health.

The Master of Science in Global Health (MSGH) is offered in partnership with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Center for Global Health and the School of Professional Studies. The center draws from the University’s renowned medical specialists and researchers to address global health issues through innovative teaching, pioneering research and advanced clinical care. Students benefit from access to a top-ranked academic medical center and dedicated center of expertise. Because the degree can be completed part time and entirely online, students anywhere in the world can access a program of this caliber while maintaining their personal and professional commitments.

The program is designed to help clinicians, researchers, epidemiologists, nonprofit administrators, policy analysts, social entrepreneurs and others make a meaningful difference in healthcare access and outcomes in the places where it’s needed most. Through multidisciplinary courses that emphasize both theory and practical application, students will learn how to improve healthcare outcomes and systems, work effectively in challenging healthcare settings, navigate global regulatory issues, evaluate results and more.
