The Department of Global and Community Health
The Department of Global and Community Health (GCH) prepares students to become critical thinkers and successful public health practitioners. Our strong educational programs emphasize public safety, preventing illness, and promoting wellness—both locally and globally. Our location provides unparalleled access to the nation's capital, and our students work with government, private, nongovernment, and community organizations, to solve community and global health challenges.
The College's interdisciplinary approach to public health education provides students a unique view of the social determinants of health - with Master of Public Health concentrations in Food Security and Nutrition and Health Policy.
