McGill MScPH students come from a variety of academic backgrounds including the basic sciences, health sciences, engineering as well as social sciences, such as sociology and economics. We particularly welcome applicants who are returning to academia after spending time in the work force.
Public Health graduates become educators, researchers, communicators, or program designers. There are opportunities in the private sector, in research, and all levels of the public sector, as well as with NGOs.
Our graduates have gone on to study and work in academics or private and public organizations, both in Canada and internationally. They have continued to advanced PhD and clinical studies studies or work as research coordinators and public health practitioners.
