Minor, Global Health

CHHS  >  GCH  >  Undergraduate

The global health minor is designed to increase students’ awareness of the major health problems and issues that transcend national boundaries.  Students develop an understanding of the critical global health concerns that affect health equity and healthcare for all people worldwide.  Students examine the public health implications of globalization and learn to think critically about how specific global health challenges may be solved in culturally appropriate ways.  The minor will enhance the education of students who are planning to work in in a variety of settings with a global health focus, including health care, government, education, and non-governmental organizations.
