Students gain a comprehensive understanding of public health philosophy, methods, and values and are provided with an insight to policy-related careers in the public health field. The MPH program is designed to help students improve decision-making capabilities and leadership skills, especially for the delivery of public health services, as well as non-profit work. Students must come to campus once in the fall (6 days), spring(4 days) and summer (4 days).

The UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health strives to integrate global content and approaches across the School’s courses, programs and degrees. We believe that every student should emerge from our School with an understanding of global health issues. Some courses are focused largely on global issues, others are designed so that global and local issues are intertwined and some still are evolving. Learn more about these options.
Many enrolled students will have the opportunity to pursue our graduate global health certificate, while others may choose global health courses, internships or independent study with global focus.
