Global Health Studies

The Global Health Studies program at the University of Miami provides students with an interdisciplinary perspective for understanding the foundations of sustainable health systems around the world. Our unique program provides both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to examine how global health outcomes relate to society, culture, and the environment. In order to meet the emerging challenges to human health and resilience, our students learn how to adopt evidence-based health policies, practices, and interventions, and how to translate them from international to community scales.
