Bachelor of Arts

In our increasingly global world, health and development are inseparable, and poor health is the greatest challenge to achievement of developmental goals. Health risks know no borders: deterioration of health in the poorest regions has worldwide effects from pandemic diseases and air pollution to damaged international relations and reduced economic trade. Emerging global health problems will require a new generation of innovative thinkers who can identify trends and critically assess intervention options. Adapted to real-world contingencies, this concentration within the Global Studies Major will prepare students to think in a multidisciplinary and critical manner. Social Science courses including anthropology, geography, and regional studies will provide students with an understanding of global health priorities as well as the history of health-related trends, priorities, and intervention measures.
