CGPH offers academic degrees at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. The undergraduate program includes 10 joint majors where students study public health with other relevant subjects.

Finally, students receive doctoral (PhD) level training in one of three concentration areas. In addition to these programs of study, a fully online Advanced Certificate in Public Health and Applied Global Public Health Certificate have also recently been launched.
