LAS Global Studies, in conjunction with Women and Gender in Global Perspectives (WGGP) is offering a Certificate in Global Health beginning Fall 2015. The Certificate is an interdisciplinary course of study that provides a credential which demonstrates student competency in the field of global health, including demonstrating social science competencies for medical school admissions. This Certificate is open to all undergraduate students on campus.
This course of study emphasizes:
- Global health theory and practice
- Interconnections of poverty, human rights, resources, disasters, migration, displacement, gender, barriers to access and other pressing worldwide issues in Global Health
- Interdisciplinary course content including core social science disciplines in the liberal arts such as Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology among others
GLBL 340: Global Health Policy and Governance will be offered this spring. The first course in the sequence, GLBL 240: Global Health, and third course, GLBL 440: Global Health Intervention and Evaluation, will be offered next fall for students interested in pursuing this program.
Interested students should attend an information session on December 7, 2015 at 2pm, held in the Global Studies Conference Room (703 S. Wright, 3rd floor) to learn about the requirements of the Certificate and apply.
More sessions for spring will be announced on their website soon.
