The MS in Global and Migrant Health Policy is designed to provide working professionals with the content expertise and research methods required to formulate and evaluate global and migrant health policies and programs. The program’s core curriculum content is rooted in public health competencies while its context is framed within global health policy development and national, state/provincial and municipal policy affecting migrant populations, in particular those in urban settings.
Course content is designed for professionals in organizations working to address and/or advance the health of migrant populations and/or to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through the better use of evidence informed policy. Students will leave the program with the skills and networks necessary to formulate and evaluate evidence-based policies and programs, returning to their host (or new) organization well-placed to increase their institutions’ implementation science capacity.
