MS in Infectious Disease and Global Health (MS-IDGH)

Study Infectious Diseases to Help Improve Global Health


A 12-month graduate degree program, the Masters of Infectious Disease and Global Health (MS-IDGH) addresses the emergence of new or increasingly virulent infectious agents, antimicrobial resistance, and the risk of deliberate dissemination of bio threat agents as seriously evolving threats to human health.

The reason I chose the MAPP Program was it seemed so diverse in everything that it covered. I learned how to look at animal protection/humane protection in an economic, psychological and historic way..
