Minor: Global Health
(GH)

Global Health at UO is the interdisciplinary study of population and public health from an international perspective. Our approach to Global Health is holistic and critical, centering the social determinants of health and health disparities, inequalities in access to health and medical care, historical processes shaping contemporary global health, institutional actors in Global Health, health policy and health organizations, and cultural influences on health and illness experiences. Students are exposed to research and practice in Global Health through interdisciplinary coursework in the social and natural sciences and humanities and an international field practicum.
