The Global Health Fellows program is a flexible 15-credit academic program for selected students interested in health practice, policies and challenges in a global context. This semester-long program is based at Mason’s Arlington campus and incorporates a significant internship experience (3 or 6 credits) with 9-12 credits of specialized coursework in global and community health, health crises, humanitarian response, health inequality, ethics and human rights. Course choices are flexible, and include online options.
The Global Health Fellows will make up a small cohort of 15 to 20 students all interested in the complex challenges of advancing health outcomes. The smaller classes allow for more student discussion and the opportunity to delve deeper into the issues facing communities near and far. The 3 or 6-credit internship provides students the chance to immediately apply what they are learning and offers students greater insight into their future career in the arena of global health, development, or research.
