The Global Health Studies Minor

The minor requires 24 total credits, a minimum GPA of 2.0, and at least 8 credits at the 300 level or above. All six courses (24 total credits) presented for the minor must be taken for a letter grade. Global Health Studies is an interdivisional minor. Students are encouraged to declare the minor by their fourth semester at Allegheny. They also are urged to enhance their studies with language courses in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and experiential opportunities that will complement their academic training.

Because this minor is interdivisional, students may complete any major to satisfy the college requirement that the major and minor be in different divisions.
