SCS Announces Master of Science in Global Health Online
Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies, in partnership with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Center for Global Health, is offering a new online Master of Science in Global Health (MSGH) program starting fall of 2014. The MSGH program is the only online global health graduate degree program available, and is designed to offer clinicians, researchers, epidemiologists, nonprofit administrators, policy analysts, social entrepreneurs and others a multidisciplinary approach to global health through courses that emphasize both theory and practical skills. The degree program offers students the tools needed to become leaders in global health care and address some of the most important, far-reaching and urgent health issues of the 21st century. Students will learn how to improve healthcare outcomes and systems, work effectively in challenging healthcare settings, navigate global regulatory issues, and evaluate results.
“Graduates of the MS in Global Health program will be prepared to identify needs, navigate complex political, sociological and regulatory environments, and deliver impactful healthcare solutions,” said Robert Murphy, M.D., director of the Center for Global Health and the John Philip Phair Professor of Infectious Diseases at Feinberg.
Students will also benefit from access to a top-ranked academic medical center and dedicated center of expertise through the program’s partnership with the Feinberg School of Medicine’s Center for Global Health. The master’s program draws faculty from the University’s renowned clinicians and researchers who address global health issues through innovative teaching, pioneering research and advanced clinical care.
The program consists of 12 online courses, each 10 weeks in length. Applications are accepted quarterly, and the deadline for admission to the fall quarter is July 15, 2014.
