Summer Institute in Curriculum and Course Design

Allegheny College is proud to be among a handful of American liberal arts colleges that boast a program in Global Health Studies (GHS).

Founded on the belief that undergraduate liberal education can play an essential role in meeting the world’s health challenges, the GHS program draws upon Allegheny’s longstanding commitments to civic engagement, diverse perspectives, internationalization, project-based and interdisciplinary learning. Thanks in part to a generous grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, we have added new faculty with expertise in epidemiology and global health, designed new health-related courses, supported student research and experiential learning opportunities, and beginning in the academic year 2013-14 offered both a major and a minor in Global Health Studies.
