Students are required to take 3 courses with a minimum of 6 units to complete the minor.
Course requirements include: GHS 101 and at least one Tier 2 course. It is recommended students take these courses during the first year of their master's program for scheduling purposes.
Remaining credits should be obtained by taking elective courses.
Courses may not overlap with the requirements of the student’s specialty or with the requirements to fulfill another minor.
- Note: Not all courses are taught each year, so students will need to determine how to complete the minor given their program requirements by checking this webpage, the course schedule and course catalog when registering for classes each quarter.
- The SF consortium and Stanford Exchange allows students to take classes on other campuses and receive credit. If a student identifies a course of interest offered by another department or school (e.g., UC Berkeley, Stanford), s/he can petition to have it count toward the minor prior to enrolling. These requests should be made to the Global Health Minor coordinator, Emily Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
