Everything you need to get involved 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.
Students interested in a Global Health minor in Human Biology must declare their minor at least two quarters prior to their intended quarter of degree conferral (for example, a student must declare a minor before the end of Autumn Quarter to graduate the following Spring Quarter). Undergraduate fields of study (subplans) are declared on Axess; these subplans appear on the transcript but not on the diploma.
In order to graduate with a minor in Human Biology, undergraduates must complete the minor program of study as described here, for a total of at least 25 units, with a minimum of six courses.
