Diseases cross borders—and so do our efforts to drive positive change within the global health realm.
Health is a right, not a privilege, and The Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Master’s of Health Science (MHS) in Community and Global Health is guided by that core principle. The master’s degree program prepares you to improve access to health locally and globally. You will build the skills and knowledge to promote health around the world through new community-based approaches. You will perform in-depth research and uncover data that illuminates both challenges and solutions. And you will gain the knowledge and confidence to drive policy changes, determine community needs, address health disparities, and solve pressing health-related challenges.
Our state-of-the-art teaching methods and community-based strategies will prepare you for the realities facing disadvantaged populations and give you the tools to lift up those in need. You’ll integrate perspectives from social, economic, cultural, political, and environmental experts to develop robust strategies that address diverse health issues from the Zika virus and drinking water contamination to endemic challenges such as diabetes and mental health.
The Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Master’s of Health Science in Community and Global Health was created with generous assistance from the Leir Charitable Foundations. It is one of an influential portfolio of programs offered by Clark University’s renowned International Development, Community, and Environment (IDCE) Department.
