Graduate Minor in Latino and Immigrant Health
About the Graduate Minor
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.
Graduate minors are designed to complement students' training by providing basic knowledge in topics outside their primary discipline. All matriculated graduate students in quarter programs are eligible to enroll.
Students must receive approval from their home program and the Dornsife School of Public Health and complete the necessary paperwork with the DSPH Academic Advising Team.
