O.H.M. Degree

One Health encompasses the relationship between human health, animal health and the health of the environment, holding that these entities are inextricably linked to the extent that none can be optimal unless they are all optimal. One Health is interdisciplinary and inclusive; it invites the full participation of community members working together with scientists, health practitioners, tribal leaders, and government agency personnel to identify problems and create realistic, sustainable solutions to those problems.

The One Health Master’s degree program educates students to use a constructionist approach to address issues in the circumpolar North that are at the intersection of human, animal and environmental health. By concentrating in either community advocacy or biomedical sciences, graduates of the program will be able to engage key stakeholders to develop and implement realistic management plans that can then be implemented in communities across the circumpolar North.

Minimum Requirements for One Health Master's Degree: 30 credits
