Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Master of Health Science in Community and Global Health

Provide impactful, creative responses to complex environment-development challenges

Complex public health problems require multidimensional and multidisciplinary solutions. Clark University's Master of Health Science (M.H.S.) in Community and Global Health, offered through the world-renowned International Development, Community, and Environment Department (IDCE), is ideal for students who are committed to health care as a right, not a privilege, and who believe in social justice and equity for all members of society.

Fellowship opportunity

The M.H.S. was created with generous assistance from the Leir Charitable Foundations. Clark University is awarding fellowships for eligible, full-time students pursuing the M.H.S. degree. The fellowship awards will provide funding for all tuition-related expenses Fellows accrue while enrolled in the program. For full consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply by January 15.
