The Master of Science in Global Health program is based on an interdisciplinary and development-oriented approach to global health. With a strong focus on quantitative, qualitative and applied social sector research in developing countries, the program offers new opportunities to individuals pursuing a career in the field of global health.

This multidisciplinary, university-wide program offers courses taught by faculty from across the different Georgetown University campuses, schools, and institutes, such as Georgetown College, the School of Nursing & Health Studies, the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University Medical Center, Georgetown Law, and McCourt School of Public Policy.

In addition, 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.
