Global Health Program

Program type: 
Program description: 

Undergraduate degrees in the Global Health Program (BA and Minor) provide students with an in‐depth understanding of factors related to illness, health, and healing from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective that transcends national borders and regional interests and takes cultural difference and diversity fully into account. The GHP integrates the social sciences, biological sciences, and humanities.
An important feature of the program is a Global Health Field Experience at a research, service, or clinical site either in the United States or abroad, which for majors culminates in a capstone seminar and senior thesis. The GHP's unique research and writing opportunities make both the BA and Minor excellent preparation for medical and graduate school, and for careers in health sciences, research and teaching, service-providing organizations, government agencies, or law.
