I’m interested in global health. How can I learn more about the Global Health Studies Program?

Welcome! The Global Health Studies Multidisciplinary Academic Program (MAP) is an interdisciplinary program for a select group of Yale undergraduates, called Global Health Scholars, who apply to the program during the fall of their sophomore year. The Global Health Studies MAP provides rigorous training in interdisciplinary global health methods and practice.

The Global Health Studies MAP runs within Yale’s Jackson Institute of Global Affairs. Scholars engage with an outstanding range of undergraduate and graduate students, Faculty, Fellows, and practitioners. Scholars take courses in a variety of Global Health Studies electives and have the opportunity to participate in a range of speaker sessions and social occasions, examining critical issues in global health. Upon completion of the program, Scholars receive a certificate in Global Health Studies, which is listed on their Yale transcript.

To learn more about the program, please feel free to explore the Global Health Studies website, learn more about our exceptional Scholars and terrific faculty, check out our events, attend the information session, and be in touch!
