Master of Public Health in Global Health

Help improve health and reduce disparities around the world.

Learn to lead and influence public health programs and identify local and global threats from the only program of its kind in Minnesota.

Transformational public health leaders start here.

Open to those with a bachelor’s degree in any field, the Master of Public Health in Global Health (MPH) degree at St. Catherine University develops transformational leaders who feel compelled to advance the well-being of all people by reducing health disparities and addressing disease prevention locally and globally. Grounded in global perspective and a social justice lens, this rigorous multi-disciplinary program is for students who are interested in using evidence-based practice for population health program development and the evaluation and implementation of behavioral, environmental, or policy interventions.

We partner with organizations that provide opportunities to work directly with international populations and gain new experiences with healthcare systems, population health, and health promotion strategies that are successful in diverse settings and cultures. Through coursework and practicum experience, students will learn to:

  • Analyze relationships and resources of entities influencing global health
  • Design workforce development strategies for resource-limited settings
  • Customize communication strategies for different audiences and sectors
  • Apply negotiation/mediation skills to address organizational and community challenges

Students enrolling in Fall 2023 have the option to complete the international requirement in a virtual format. These transformative online experiences fulfill the learning outcomes of the graduate program, and offer the opportunity to build relationships for future professional development with counterparts around the world.

The program is offered in the evening in a hybrid or fully online format, providing flexibility for working professionals and those with family responsibilities. The program is open to students of all genders.
