University of California, San Diego, Department of Anthropology

The Global Health Program (GHP) is an interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate degree program at the University of California San Diego (see UC San Diego Campus Profile). The program is the first of its kind within the University of California and one of only a handful in North America where students can gain a comprehensive initiation to the exciting and rapidly growing field of Global Health. The GHP is student-centered and emphasizes a balance between critical thinking and real world experience. Degrees in the Global Health Program provide students with an in?depth understanding of factors related to illness, health, and healing from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective that transcends national borders and regional interests and takes cultural difference and diversity fully into account. The program’s degrees are designed to be intellectually comprehensive, integrating the social sciences, biological sciences, and humanities. They combine academic and experiential learning, striking a balance between acquisition of hard skills, critical thinking, and real world knowledge.
