Students are required to take 3 courses with a minimum of 6 units to complete the minor.
Students must complete GHS 101 and at least one Tier 2 course
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 the course schedule and course catalog when registering for classes each quarter. 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 email@example.com.
