Undergraduate Minor in Global Health
- Catalog information: Undergraduate Minor in Global Health
- The Global Health Minor was originally created and administered by Dr. Julie Casani, Dr. Cathrine Hoyo, and the Department of Biological Sciences. This minor will be moving into the Global One Health Academy and undergoing revisions to create a more intentional focus on One Health, the idea that the health of humans, animals, plants, and the environment are all connected.
- The Global Health minor provides undergraduate students with an understanding of current global health challenges, and an appreciation of interdisciplinary approaches to addressing global health needs.
- This 18 credit hour minor is especially appropriate for (but not limited to) students majoring in the life sciences, social sciences, engineering, and international studies. Students enrolled in the minor will learn public health fundamentals through a global perspective, epidemiology and statistics related to global public health, and additional societal and scientific aspects of global health.
The Global One Health Academy offers several funded opportunities for graduate students at NC State, including fellowships, travel awards, sponsored internships, and more.
