Colgate’s Global Public and Environmental Health Program helps students to understand interdisciplinary perspectives on critical health issues and the skills needed to address them, both locally and on a global scale. Students in public health learn to think critically, speak, and write clearly and articulately about health issues from a variety of perspectives. The global public health curriculum combines interdisciplinary breadth with depth in a chosen field of study.

The Global Public and Environmental Health Program is an interdisciplinary program located within the Division of University Studies and staffed by faculty from the four academic divisions who apply their knowledge and expertise to teaching and research endeavors that cross disciplinary boundaries. The program administers a minor that includes a common introductory course to ensure a common interdisciplinary experience. Students achieve depth in analytical ability by taking a set of courses chosen in consultation with their adviser. To fulfill the global public and environmental health minor graduation requirements, students must possess a minimum overall GPA of at least 2.00 in all courses counted toward the minor, both the introductory course and those taken in other departments and programs.
