“The Human Science Program is a perfect blend of research, scientific communication, biology, and community health. The major is a great introduction to what challenges and opportunities exist in the health care field.”

Yasmin Zuch (NHS’20), Human Science Program graduate and Udall Scholar
Leo Shih

“I was drawn to the Bachelor’s in Global Health Program specifically because of the practice-based nature of the curriculum and the opportunities it presents for learning by doing, such as the Senior Year Practicum Abroad.”

Leo Shih (H’26), BS in Global Health with Religion, Ethics, and World Affairs minor

“The Health Care Management and Policy Program offers a unique exposure to the American health care system — its cracks, areas of opportunity, structure, and future.”

Christopher King

“You can take just about any discipline and apply a health lens to it. Having that mindset as we launch this school, and recognizing there are so many intersections that shape our health and well-being, we will foster a culture that enables students and faculty to think creatively around how to tackle issues that seem to be intractable.”
— Christopher J. King, PhD, MHSc, FACHE, Inaugural Dean, Georgetown University School of Health
