Program mission: To develop responsible graduates who have the necessary knowledge, skills, and values to pursue successful careers in health systems in the U.S. and abroad. The program aims to prepare students for both entry-level positions and for advanced degree programs (e.g. graduate school, medical school, law school).

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.
NOTE: Undergraduate students have limited opportunity to pursue our certificates or global health courses.
