GlobalmastersengSince announcing our Commitment to Action at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2013, EARTH University and the Faculty of Health Sciences of the American University of Beirut have developed a groundbreaking Global Master’s program in Health and Sustainable Development. A pilot version of the Global Master’s is being offered this summer over 3-4 weeks in the form of a condensed course titled “Global Health and Sustainable Development Post 2015 – A New Approach to Natural Resources Management”. This summer course will contribute to fine-tuning the model for th the full (18 months) Global Master’s program that is expected to be launched around September 2016. It will also provide participants a one-of-a-kind transdisciplinary learning experience that will help them to expand their intercultural competencies, allow them to interact with professionals from around the world, and to acquire a deep understanding of managing natural resources in the post-2015 development era.

This course will be offered From June 23 to July 18, 2015 to a select group of 15 students from around the globe. The $800 participation fee is just a fraction of the total cost of the program and covers travel, room, board and transportation in both Costa Rica and Lebanon for the duration of the course. Note: The application deadline is April 15, 2015.
