Minor in Global Public Health
About the Minor
The Global Public Health minor provides students with basic knowledge about global public health, as well as the necessary skills and experience to begin to build their own unique global public health career.
The minor is designed around three specific educational objectives for students: to learn more about the problems of global public health in a classroom setting, to experience the issues in global health firsthand in a field setting, and to be exposed to the variety of careers available in global public health by working with faculty, professional staff, and graduate students who are currently engaged in the field.
- Undergraduate students with at least 30.0 credits
- Students cannot pursue a major and a minor in the same field of study
- PBHL 101 is a prerequisite for this minor.
