The Global Health Studies Program recognizes the importance of experiential learning, i.e. opportunities for students to be involved in activities outside of the classroom which reinforce and apply knowledge and skills obtained within the classroom.   Such engagement is crucial for students as they define their interests and work toward post-graduation goals. Program faculty and staff help connect students to local, regional and international opportunities for both academic and co-curricular engagement. 

 

Importantly, the Global Health Studies Program encourages student involvement in experiential learning
only if it is conducted through reputable organizations which uphold ethical and health standards
for both students and local populations worldwide.
