Minor Requirements

To earn a minor in Global Health Studies, students must:

Course requirements

Two GBL_HLTH core courses
Two additional GBL_HLTH courses
Three elective courses

Study abroad requirement

You must participate in a substantial public health experience abroad. Most students complete one of Northwestern's public health programs, offered in China, France, Mexico, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and South Africa. Two of your Global Health Studies elective requirements can be completed on a public health study abroad program. Students who elect to study abroad more than once may earn more elective credits.

You may also participate in a non-Northwestern public health program (either affiliated with the university or not). Click here for more information on these options.
