Global Health Studies Program

The Global Health Studies Program at Yale University is designed for undergraduate students interested in understanding and addressing pressing global health challenges. The program offers courses through an interdisciplinary framework that brings together the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities.

Students desiring greater depth in the field are encouraged to apply to become a Global Health Scholar. The Global Health Scholars Program is one of Yale’s Multidisciplinary Academic Programs (MAP).
