Two Core Courses

GHCS 102: Introduction to Global Health
GHCS 300: Core Issues in Global Health (prerequisite: GHCS 102)

Four Approved Elective Courses

The approved elective courses must be taken in at least two different departments. Only one course which counts toward your major may be counted toward the GHCS minor. See your major department for information about classes that may count toward your major.

Elective courses that have a major focus on social, economic, environmental or other aspects of global health offered by a variety of Emory College departments are identified and approved by the program prior to each semester. For a list of courses, click on the Elective Courses link. Check home department websites for course prerequisites.

Other courses taken here or abroad, or internships with an academic component, may be considered as GHCS electives, by petition, if a substantial portion of the course content centers on global health issues. See Whitney Easton in the Anthropology Department Office to obtain and submit a petition form. After the petition is reviewed, you will be contacted by email about the decision.

A maximum of 2 elective courses (8 credits) may be taken off campus, including study abroad.
