The global health minor provides students with a deeper understanding of myriad health care approaches and perspectives across borders and a greater appreciation for the global implications of local health conditions and worldwide or regional epidemics.

The field of global health connects the approaches, methods, and philosophies of public health with diverse communities, radical political-economics differentials, logistical challenges for healthcare access and resources, and wide concerns for root or systemic causes and downstream effects.

In addition, global health takes into consideration varied understandings for both health and health care in the context of great cultural variation, as well as concerns for empowerment and disempowerments, which arise from cultural differences coupled with political inequalities.
