Minor in Global Health

The Human Biology Program and Stanford Global Health have teamed up to provide an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in global health. The Minor in Global Health will introduce students to concepts, challenges and opportunities in the field of global health. Students will study health throughout the world, global disparities and possible interventions. Courses will explore  the relationship between the biological and social aspects of humanity’s origin, development and future while offering students flexibility to pursue a deeper study in a chosen field of interest. The chosen subplan will appear on the student’s official transcript.
