An inherently interdisciplinary program, an African Studies minor offers a broad selection of courses on Africa that will provide you with a rich understanding of the many African traditions, cultures, and contemporary and historical issues. You will gain a cross-cultural perspective that is invaluable in today's global marketplace. Regardless of your major, you might consider adding breadth to your academic program and choose African Studies as a secondary major. As a student in the Global Health Program, we will help you to advance your awareness of alternative world perspectives and the issues that influence community health, become an emerging global health leader, learn how to address the health concerns of diverse, vulnerable populations worldwide, and develop the skills to successfully collaborate and address global health challenges with international health professionals and organizations.
