Study Abroad

NYU Around the World

The College of Global Public Health (GPH) is located in one of the greatest cities in the world—New York City—placing you in proximity to some of the city’s most challenging public health concerns.

However, ever-growing and complex global health concerns mean that diverse public health difficulties affect the entire world. The NYU MPH ensures that you gain a truly global perspective on public health issues through study abroad opportunities, faculty research and applied learning experiences that span six continents, giving you a unique advantage in becoming the next generation of public health innovators and pioneers.

Where Can I Travel?

The MPH program offers eight areas of concentration and multiple dual-degree options, all of which offer diverse opportunities for global experiences. 

NYU Global Network

Beyond NYU’s eight interdisciplinary schools here in New York City, we are part of a global network of degree-granting institutions and campus centers around the world. You’ll have academic opportunities for travel throughout your degree program, such as taking a Global Non-Communicable Disease Epidemiology & Control class in London, or studying health emergency preparedness in Cuba.
