An Interdisciplinary Academic Experience

As the world deals with the aftermath of COVID-19, the Global Health Studies (GHS) prepares students to work, learn, and lead in a recovering post-pandemic society.

The undergraduate major in Global Health Studies offers a truly interdisciplinary academic experience.  Coursework for this major includes local and global aspects of health: medicine, prevention, policy, faith, environment, culture, society, and research.  Students have multiple pathways available to craft a unique course of study that prepares them for any number of opportunities after graduation, including medical or nursing school, doctoral study, or employment in the non-profit, government, or private sectors.
