Global Health Studies

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, and interdisciplinary learning. Thanks in part to a generous grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, we are adding new faculty in epidemiology and nutritional neuroscience, designing new health-related courses, supporting student research and experiential learning opportunities, and beginning in the academic year 2013-14 offering both a major and a minor in Global Health Studies.
