Offering a comprehensive initiation into the exciting and rapidly growing field of Global Health. This interdisciplinary degree aids in the understanding and productively intervening in processes of health, illness, and healing across the globe.

Undergraduate degrees (Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science - effective Fall 2019 and the Minor) and graduate degrees (Master of Arts in Global Health - effective Fall 2019) in the Global Health Program 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 Global Health Program (GHP) is designed to be intellectually comprehensive, integrating the social sciences, biological sciences, and humanities. Students will combine academic and experiential learning, striking a balance between acquisition of hard skills, critical thinking, and real world knowledge. 

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.

Join us for an intellectual adventure that can put you in a position to make a contribution to the well-being of today’s world!
