Global Health Studies at Yale College

The Global Health Studies Program is designed for undergraduate Yale students interested in understanding and addressing pressing global health challenges.

The Global Health Studies Multidisciplinary Academic Program (GHS MAP) offers undergraduate students at Yale College the opportunity to engage critically and analytically in global health from multiple disciplinary approaches and perspectives. The GHS MAP supports students in developing and balancing an appreciation for biomedical and technical issues related to diseases, their treatment and prevention, with an understanding of the historical, social, economic and political concerns that are implicated in how health is determined and experienced in the 21st century.

The program also exposes students to relevant research methodologies to develop their understanding of how knowledge in global health is constructed and how these approaches could inform their academic pursuits and future careers.

The Global Health Studies program hosts talks on a variety of global health topics. See the Jackson events page for details.
