A World-Class Multidisciplinary Master of Science in Global Health

The Master of Science in Global Health is based on an interdisciplinary, development-oriented approach to global health. With a strong focus on quantitative, qualitative and applied social sector research in low- to middle-income countries, the Master’s of Science in Global Health is housed within the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, and offers new opportunities to individuals pursuing a career in the field of global health and development.

Master’s of Science in Global Health at Georgetown University Overview:

The Master’s of Science in Global Health is a 32-credit degree organized around a core curriculum of global health and five areas of concentration and can be completed through a part-time or full-time schedule. This multidisciplinary, university-wide, global health program offers courses taught by faculty from across the different Georgetown University campuses, schools, and institutes, such as Georgetown College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Health, the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University Medical Center, Georgetown Law, and McCourt School of Public Policy.

The Field Research Module provides students with a three-month experience in a low- or middle-income country. The degree culminates in a Scholarly Paper that enhances the academic field of global health. The Field Research Module enables students to apply and integrate classroom experience abroad and gain first-hand experience conducting research.

As the nation’s capital and a global political center, Washington, D.C. is a melting pot of individuals and organizations. For these reasons, the city is considered a major hub for public health, global health, and health policy. The city is filled with government agencies, non-profit organizations, and countless businesses and firms. This saturation of institutions provides enormous opportunity for graduate students – particularly those pursuing a degree in global health. Because most of our program’s courses are in the evenings, students can pursue full- or part-time internships and jobs with these organizations.
