Community and Global Health

Program Information

Professors: Geist and Kiino (co-directors)

The Community and Global Health interdisciplinary concentration enables students to broadly explore the determinants and consequences of physical and mental health, critically examine relevant global, national, and local policies and programs, learn theories and methodologies important to the study of public health, and gain and apply practical skills through service-learning courses and projects, internships, study abroad, and/or community-based research. It prepares students, as global citizens, to recognize the spectrum of contemporary global health issues and exercise intellectual and practical skills in response. It also prepares students interested in careers in public health or human, dental, or veterinary medicine for graduate and professional school.
