The Department of International Health seeks to understand health problems and develop means of disease reduction and health protection in underserved populations around the world.

The Department is organized into four program areas: Global Disease Epidemiology and Control; Health Systems; Human Nutrition; and Social and Behavioral Interventions.

We offer a master of science in public health (MSPH) and doctoral-level training for research (PhD) in these program areas, as well as a master of health science in health economics (MHS). We also offer many continuing education programs online and on campus.
