Department of Global and Environmental Health

Welcome to the Department of Global and Environmental Health at NYU School of Global Public Health, where we are dedicated to inspiring and equipping the next generation of public health leaders with skills in innovation, design, and practice.

Our students join us with an unwavering passion to drive transformative, sustainable, and system-level change in the face of the world's most complex public health challenges. They leave our program armed with technical expertise and practical knowledge to do just that.

As of Fall 2023, we are no longer offering Spring admission into the program.
