Together with the College of Global Public Health, Gallatin has created a dual-degree program that enables students to earn both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Gallatin and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from NYU’s College of Global Public Health in less time than it would take to complete the programs separately.

“Our partnership with the College of Global Public Health complements Gallatin’s emphasis on the connections between the local and global,” says Gallatin’s Associate Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs Millery Polyné. “A dual degree program pushes our students to do more than ‘good’ in the realm of global health and to ask fundamental questions about equity and boundaries that inhibit change.”

For the dual degree, students can choose from one of three concentrations of study in the MPH program: Epidemiology, Global Health, or Social and Behavioral Sciences. Designed for academically strong students who possess an equally strong commitment to public leadership, the dual degree helps them build a meaningful career in public service. Upon graduation, students who earn the BA-MPH dual degree will be well-positioned to enter the field of public health and to work in the public sphere.
