The global health program is an interdisciplinary minor. The minor combines courses in anthropology, political science, geography, religious studies, philosophy, health science, nutrition, economics, history, and others. Students are required to complete at least 18 credits that will introduce them to the principles of global health.
Students are also expected to conduct an experiential learning component such as study abroad, undergraduate research, or service learning. At least 3 credits in a foreign language (200+ level) are also required as an ancillary requirement for the minor.
For additional details about coursework, see the UA Undergraduate Catalog.
