YEREVAN – American University of Armenia (AUA) alumna Ani Movsisyan, who graduated in 2013 with a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, has been admitted to the Master of Science Program in Evidence-Based Social Intervention, in the Department of Social Policy and Intervention at the University of Oxford.
Movsisyan earned the Open Society Foundations Oxford Scholarship as a professional who demonstrates both academic excellence and the potential to become a leader and decision-maker in her own country. The scholarship covers tuition and college fees, and provides a stipend to cover living and air travel costs to and from the United Kingdom.
The 2012-2013 Times Higher Education World University Rankings placed Oxford in the top ten universities in the world in life sciences, physical sciences, clinical, pre-clinical, and health sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities.
Given Ani’s academic background and interest in exploring complex psycho-social interventions, the Master of Science in Evidence-Based Social Intervention, a one-year program which facilitates integrating research findings into practical applications and decision-making, will help her to integrate into wider academic horizons and to advance in the field. In addition to her MPH degree from AUA, Ani also holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Yerevan State University.
The AUA School of Public Health works actively to improve the health of the populace and health services in Armenia and the region through interdisciplinary education and development of public health professionals and others to be leaders in public health, health services research and evaluation, and health care delivery and management.
