Global Health Minor
Available only via Ecampus.
The minor provides a solid foundation in social determinants of health and prepares students interested in the allied health services and sciences, as well as those primarily focused on public health, to apply principles of health equity, cultural competence and humility, and global thinking. Students learn about the global health processes (e.g. migration, discrimination, and polarization) that shape health outcomes. This program is fully online.
