Opportunities within the field of global health are expanding as the world becomes more interconnected. Recognizing that many global health problems stem from environmental change, and from economic, social, political, and health care inequalities, CC is designing an interdisciplinary program in global health studies that spans the breadth of disciplines at the College. The Minor in Global Health emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, a research experience, and mentorship from expert faculty. We prepare our graduates to make an impact in the domain of global health by reducing the negative impact of disease upon the lives of the most vulnerable peoples.Students will exit with a deeper understanding of the social, economic, and political determinants of health, and the history of global responses to health problems.Image via Flickr user #ISurvived Ebola
