Students in the field in the Global Health Minor Program.

During your work in the Global Health Minor, you will complete a five -week supervised fieldwork experience in Ecuador, South Africa, or Tanzania. This experience, along with course work, will help you develop the capacity to think, talk, and write critically about global health issues and challenges and help you prepare for occupations and graduate programs that demand global thinking, understanding and experience.

The Global Health Minor is a competitive minor, open to any Penn State student who is enrolled at the University Park campus and who has declared a major field of study. Applications are due February 15, 2020
