PBHL 5020 - Global Health


Goals: To introduce students to the dynamic field of global health and cultivate an appreciation for the pursuit of health equity for all people.

Content: This interdisciplinary course is designed to introduce students to the field of global health and should be viewed as a culmination of the public health major and an opportunity to apply all you have learned in a global context. This course aims to frame global health’s collection of problems and actions with a particular biosocial perspective. It first develops a toolkit of analytical approaches and then uses them to examine historical and contemporary global health initiatives with careful attention to a critical sociology of knowledge. We will investigate what the field of global health may include, how global health problems are defined and constructed, and how global health interventions play out in expected and unexpected ways.

Prerequisites: PBHL 1100, PBHL 3100, and Junior or Senior standing
