Graduate Minor in Latino and Immigrant Health

About the Graduate Minor

Note: This graduate minor is not enrolling students for 2021-2022.

Globalization, economic inequalities, civil unrest, terrorism, climate change, and other factors are resulting in ever-larger global population movements with significant public health implications for nations at all stages of migration pathways.

The Latino and Immigrant Health graduate minor allows students to explore the unique public health needs of immigrant and migrant communities with emphasis on, but not limited to, Latino immigrants to the United States. Coursework will cover priority health issues and health disparities affecting migrant and immigrant populations, the public health implications of international migration, explanatory and intervention theories of immigration and immigrant health, and intervention approaches to improve the health of migrants in communities of origin, transit, and destination. The minor also addresses key methodological and ethical issues related to conducting research and practicing public health among foreign-born and mobile populations. The minor emphasizes the unique health concerns of Latino immigrants in the United States and reviews successful strategies to work with Latino communities along the migration continuum.
