Master of Science in Global Health - Fall 2010
Priority Deadline: January 30, 2010

As the 21st century unfolds, international attention is focusing increasingly on the health concerns of poor and marginalized populations, and the ramifications of global health inequities for development. From pandemics to environmental degradation, global health is an economic concern and a human issue.

WY3c-M8ElSV6poJ9M96tBe0zcZJrMmV34DREmPXJM-1BKGYy1Tg==>Master of Science in Global Health (MSc-GH) is designed to appeal to an array of students, researchers, policy makers, managers, analysts, and clinical practitioners who desire a more complete understanding of the diverse causes of and solutions to health problems from an interdisciplinary global perspective.
Upon completion of the MSc-GH, graduates will be prepared to engage in clinical, epidemiological, social-behavioral, and policy-oriented research, as well as contribute to the design, implementation, and management of health programs.
The MSc-GH is administered by the Duke Global Health institute (DGHI) and involves many other institutes, departments, and schools. A guiding principle of the degree program is the recognition that a multidisciplinary and multi-sector approach to health is essential, as health is influenced by a multitude of factors, including, but not limited to: individual behaviors; family and childhood dynamics; community characteristics; economic status; gender; genetics; country laws and politics; the environment; and the availability, accessibility, and quality of education, health care, nutrition, water, housing, and other basic goods.
