Online Master in International Public Health Overview

EUCLID, an intergovernmental treaty-based organization with a university mandate, offers to select students from the general public an online master in international public health with a focus on Global South issues.

EUCLID’s two flagship programs dealing with Global Health are:

(1) The “EUCLID Master of Science in International Public Health (MIPH)” (this page)

(2) The “EUCLID PhD in International Public Health (DIPH).

EUCLID also maintains a dedicated web site at:

It is, to date, the only Master’s degree program in this field offered by an international intergovernmental organization. Its purpose is to prepare highly qualified public health professionals able to serve in civil service, international organizations, health care institutions, as well as non-governmental organizations globally.

Program Philosophy

Public Health is often studied from a national-central perspective. Few programs are truly international in scope so as to fully prepare graduates for global civil service careers that will engage a wide variety of global health challenges, including malaria, HIV, drug-resistance, diet-related diseases, etc. To answer this challenge, EUCLID has designed a comprehensive and challenging online master’s degree in international public health (MSc) curriculum, which is presented here with full documentation of syllabus and faculty resources, as well as total tuition. This documentation will enable students globally to determine if this program is best for them.

Audience | Interest Groups

This unique Master’s degree focuses on the practical and policy aspects of global public health rather than the advancement of academic knowledge or theoretical knowledge.

The MIPH was primarily designed to serve civil servants of EUCLID’s Participating States, but it is also open to the general public as an excellent route to pursue a career within inter-governmental bodies, NGOs and the public sector.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, and because it covers such topics as malaria and tropical diseases in depth, it is expected to be of special interest to African students.
