The CGPH offers academic degrees at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. The undergraduate program includes 10 combined majors where students study public health with other relevant subjects (i.e. applied psychology; anthropology, biology, chemistry, sociology etc.). The CEPH-accredited Master of Public Health degree allows students to obtain an MPH in one of five concentrations. The College is home to the MA in bioethics as well. There is also a full-time, one-year Cross-Continental MPH program. Finally, students receive doctoral level training in one of three concentration areas with more concentrations to be developed. In addition to these programs of study, a fully online Advanced Certificate in Public Health has also recently been launched.

NYU has an extensive global network of teaching and research sites throughout the world. Known collectively as the Global Network University (GNU), these sites include 3 portal campuses and 11 global academic centers in Africa, South America, China, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. This unique arrangement allows the CGPH faculty to establish training and degree programs as well as research efforts worldwide; offers faculty and students truly unique opportunities to engage in their research and study around the world; and informs public health practice both locally and globally through the exchange of knowledge.
