The Division of Public Health has a 20 year history of global health scholarship founded on principles of community engagement and Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR). We cultivate long-term global partnerships that provide a strong foundation for global health education, research, and innovation. Our students can study at our U.S. or Asia campuses and participate in faculty-led global health learning abroad programs in Ghana, India, Peru, Bhutan and South Korea. We have recently added a concentration in global health for the MPH degree and aim to prepare students with relevant skills for global health careers.
