Global Health

Welcome to Global Health!

Studying global health can provide a multidisciplinary lens on the complex challenges of our interconnected world. Along with the knowledge gained through global health coursework, you’ll have opportunities to participate in research, service and field experiences. You’ll learn to study social determinants of health and the complex relationship between health and environmental, social and cultural factors. Students explore these relationships as through coursework, study abroad programs, fieldwork experiences and interactions within the global health community.
