Global Health Minor

The Global Health minor will allow you to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of health issues and health care in a global context.  Through the bundling of a broad range of courses, this minor will provide a solid foundation in social, cultural, epidemiological, environmental and nutritional determinants of health, and will explore the challenges facing global health solutions.  You will investigate the health implications of globalization, as well as have the option for an engagement experience, both of which contribute to better understanding the determinants of health issues around the world.
