Healthcare comprises more than knowledge of science and medicine – the health of individuals and communities is also shaped by wider economic, social, and political factors in our interconnected world. Global health is a compelling and growing field of study that examines the health of communities on an international scale, paying attention to issues of justice, inequality, and problems that transcend borders. The interdisciplinary Global Health Minor takes a liberal arts approach to the study of health within a global context. The unique courses and training provided by the minor will help students analyze some of the most pressing problems that shape our world, preparing students for exciting careers in healthcare, public policy, international service, and more.
