The minor in Global Health Studies is available to undergraduate students completing a degree program at the University of Iowa and requires the completion of at least 15 s.h. of coursework approved for the Global Health Studies certificate/minor. Because the program is interdisciplinary, students should choose coursework from at least two different discipinary perspectives. Students are strongly encouraged to include a core course from those listed under requirements for the certificate in Global Health Studies. A period of study abroad focused on global health issues is highly recommended.
Each student's plan of study for the minor is developed according to the student's interests and in consultation with a program advisor. Students must earn a G.P.A. of 2.00 or higher in all coursework for the minor and must complete at least 12 s.h. of advanced coursework for the minor at the University of Iowa.
