GW Public Health

Graduate programs at GW train passionate public health students to become effective public health professionals. Our students come to understand the complex interrelationships between health, politics, and human development. They learn to address public health issues by marshaling research and analytic skills to understand, promote, and advocate for healthy communities. And they accomplish all of this while gaining a network of colleagues and mentors who will support their academic and career progression long after they leave Foggy Bottom.

At GW, we believe that your professional development should not be put on hold while you pursue a degree. Real-world, on-the-job experience is not only encouraged – it’s required. Our evening class schedule allows full and part-time students alike to pursue volunteer or staff positions with over 600 partner organizations in public health. Through practicum, internship, and residency positions, you will couple the passion of public health study with the practicality of its execution.
