Global Public Health
The Global Public Health program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program offered through collaboration among the Boston College Schools of Education, Nursing, and Social Work. The program is open to all Boston College undergraduates, and it is designed for students who wish to explore global health issues as the basis for a potential career in public health, or who wish to understand the significance of global health challenges for their own futures in other fields. The Global Public Health program has a broad vision, and an important purpose of the program is to draw together advances in the natural sciences with the insights of the humanities and social sciences.
The Global Public Health program begins with a three-course sequence that integrates foundational principles of public health with research on health topics, populations, and settings so that students can learn about the public health field and the application of skills to real-world problems.
