Global Health Minor


Learn how global health impacts us all.

The area of global health has become a critical field of study across and within diverse disciplines because of the cross-border and cross-national implications of health-related risks for national security, commerce, transportation and healthcare delivery itself.

In collaboration with the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the minor in Global Health is designed to provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to explore and discuss the implications with an interdisciplinary lens.

Program Requirements

The minor is comprised of five courses, two of which are foundation and core courses, three electives, and a global health experience to be approved by the Global Health minor advisor.

All coursework must be completed at a minimum grade of B and courses may not be taken Pass/Fail.
