Certificate in Global Health, Medicine and Society
Are you fascinated with interdisciplinary perspectives on medicine, health, and healing across culture, time, and place? Are you interested in understanding the various social forces that affect human health and diseases, and our responses to them? Are you interested in medical anthropology, the medical humanities, and/or medical ethics? This new certificate offers students the opportunity to study health and medicine in the era of globalization from a social-scientific and humanistic perspective. The interdisciplinary Global Health, Medicine, and Society certificate invites students to think broadly about the health cultures, philosophies, and practices around the world.
