It’s Back to School for 100’s of Global Health Students
Published September 04, 2018 under Education News
The halls of DGHI—nearly deserted over the summer—are once again abuzz with the chatter of students, many of whom have just barely returned from their summer fieldwork.
As we enter the tenth year of the Master of Science in Global Health program (stay tuned for more on this big milestone!), we're welcoming 30 new and 34 returning master’s students. In addition, 232 undergraduate global health students (106 majors and 126 minors), 13 global health doctoral scholars and 15 global health doctoral certificate candidates have returned to campus.
All of our education programs continue to draw students from a wide range of academic disciplines, including biology, engineering, public policy, anthropology and statistics, to name just a few.
“Our undergraduate and graduate students are back from their summer fieldwork experiences all over the world doing interesting, meaningful work mentored by our DGHI faculty, and we’re excited to have a new cohort of students starting our master’s program in global health,” said Mary Story, associate director for academic programs. “We’re looking forward to welcoming them and starting a new academic year.”
This year, for the first time, nine Master of Science in Global Health students from Duke Kunshan University will spend their fall semester at Duke.
