The Hubert Department of Global Health seeks to improve health services and delivery systems around the world through research, teaching, and service.
The master of public health (MPH) degree in global health provides students with applied public health training in a global context. This program is offered in both a traditional, 24-month format and an accelerated, 12-month format.
All students enrolled in the traditional MPH choose a concentration in infectious disease; community health and development; public health nutrition; or sexual and reproductive health and population studies.
Our department hosts the Humphrey Fellowship program. Humphrey fellows are mid-career professionals from developing countries who are selected for their leadership potential. Additional international fellows are funded by the Foege, Fulbright, CDC, King Abdullah, and Muskie Programs.Learn more>>
Collaboration is a key component to our program. Our faculty and students work closely with local and international organizations including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Gates Foundation, the Global Health Institute, as well as various others, to remove public health inequities and improve public health around the world.

All Rollins master's students participate in a 200-400 hour practicum in a public health setting—either locally or internationally. Students in the Global Health Department have additional resources for finding global practicum opportunities through the Global Health Practicum Fair. Many students, despite the department they are in, find funding for their international practicum through the Global Field Experience.
Graduates of the program find employment abroad with international and bilateral agencies, government departments, nongovernmental organizations, and research and academic institutions. Many also work with U.S.-based organizations concerned with global issues.
