In 2009, the Duke Global Health Institute created one of the first graduate-level, interdisciplinary degrees solely focused on the study of global health. The Master of Science in Global Health (MSc-GH) draws on faculty and expertise from across Duke University and collaborators around the world to provide a comprehensive study of global health challenges, ethics, research and policy.
Unlike traditional public health graduate programs, the MSc-GH offers a tailored, research-based curriculum that culminates in a field research project that you design and complete. The field research can take place at one of DGHI’s 11 established priority locations or a location chosen by you and your mentor. We’ll even provide funding to make it possible. This opportunity to work and live in locations around the world can be one of the most transformational experiences of your academic career.
We are looking for the best and brightest students who seek to join the next generation of global health leaders. I hope you’ll join us for an experience that is unmatched. I look forward to welcoming you to the MSc-GH at Duke in the future.
