MPH in International Health and Development

The MPH in International Health and Development will become the MPH in International Health and Sustainable Development starting in Fall 2021 as the Department of International Health and Sustainable Development emerges as a standalone department.

The International Health and Development Program at Tulane provides professional public health education in the underlying causes of the major health problems facing developing societies as well as approaches to assess prevalence and consequences, address the problems, and assess the effectiveness of mitigation efforts.    

Students who pursue this program of study will develop expertise in one or more of health areas, gain the methodological expertise necessary to assess and mitigate public health problems as well as evaluate program effectiveness. The curriculum and applied learning opportunities draw upon Tulane's extensive overseas research, technical assistance work, and nearly four decades of experience in providing leadership training in international health to students from around the world.

Admission Requirements

Students applying to the Master of Public Health in International Health and Development program must meet the school's general admission requirements and submit materials per the application requirements.
