The new and innovative Graduate Program in Global Health is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and interprofessional M.Sc. degree program. The program strives for synergy in global health, integrating education and research from the Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, and DeGroote School of Business. It is designed to prepare students for the global workforce providing a solid foundation in global health issues through blended learning and experience in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Students will receive education in the major topics of global health ranging from globalization and management issues, to studies of disease and policy response. The M.Sc. is offered as either course-based or thesis-based depending on the goals of the student.

McMaster University has established a partnership that includes collaborative international learning experience with Maastricht University, The Netherlands. McMaster and Maastricht offering two core courses-Global Health Foundations I and II online by faculty members at both universities. Students from both universities will also join together for the learning symposium/field orientation (service learning) in Term 3 at Manipal University in India. Alternatives will be found for students with disabilities or for whom travel to India might cause undue hardship.

Term 2 will provide students the opportunity to choose from one of the following three fields of the Global Health program: Globalization and Development, Global Health Management, and Global Diseases.

On completion of this Master’s program, graduates will qualify for positions with global health and development agencies.
