In the spring 2021 issue of Grow, writer Nicole Miller MS’06 introduced readers to the new global health major, through which students explore how human health intersects with climate change, food systems, disease ecology, environmental health, economic development, and health care access.

Both a bioscience and public health major, it was created in response to student demand for more depth and background than what is offered through the global health certificate curriculum. As of this fall, 213 undergraduates have declared the global health major. The certificate remains popular as well, with 492 students pursuing that option.
