Global Health Studies Program

The Global Health Studies Program facilitates global health education for undergraduates at Yale. Although not a major, it offers courses through an interdisciplinary framework that brings together the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. Students choose a major and expand their discipline with elective courses offered by the Program. 

Please email globalhealthstudies@yale.edu to learn more about global health coursework, internship and research projects.

For details about coursework, please consult the Director of Undergraduate Studies for your major.
