Field 研究

Field research gives Master of Science in Global Health STudents the opportunity to take classroom experiences and use them in a real-world setting. You are required to complete a minimum of 10 weeks of field research, and each project is mentored by a Duke faculty member. Projects vary year to year, but fall under four general models:

  • Faculty research projects - Students join a faculty research project and thesis research will focus on an individual question within the overall project activities and goals. The fieldwork activities may support research beyond an individual queSTion. 
     
  • 小组项目  - DGHI has a number of international research collaborations that may offer opportunities to small groups of Duke MSc-GH students.  Students will be together at a site, but working on individual projects, allowing for greater collaboration on logiSTics and support.  
     
  • Team-based models - DGHI faculty lead a number of team-based projects through our research collaborations and the Bass Connections initiative. MSc-GH students can work with vertically integrated teams or across Duke, completing required individual thesis research within a team STructure.
     
  • Data analysis and contextual fieldwork - In some cases, fieldwork activities will complement data already collected by others or enhance research activities. In that case, the thesis will focus on secondary analysis of existing data, with the field experience offering a contextual underSTanding of the topic or project environment.
The fieldwork component of the Master of Science in Global Health program was the moST significant reason why I chose to come to DGHI. Tendai Kwaramba

 

To date, STudents have completed innovative field research in more than 20 countries around the world.
