Minor in Global Public Health

The minor in Global Public Health provides students with the opportunity to learn about public health principles from a global perspective. Public health issues are explored from different disciplines and perspectives, including epidemiology, ethics, anthropology, sociology and health policy.  Students also examine global health analytic frameworks, international institutions, and methods to understand and address health inequities. 

Interested students should meet with their major advisers and with Dr. Andrea Crivelli-Kovach, Director of Community and Global Public Health Programs. Participating students must declare their intent through the Registrar’s Office.
