Electives

Public Health-Global Health majors choose a minimum of 20 credits of 300- and 400-level courses in order to deepen public health competencies in a range of areas. Below is a list of approved Electives, effective for students entering the Major in AUT/20 and beyond. For Majors who entered prior to AUT/19, refer to your degree audit (DARS). Students may petition for the use of individual courses not on the approved list by way of the Course Substitution Form. Please include a thoughtful justification which links course content to the Public Health-Global Health Major competencies/learning objectives.

Students are encouraged to select courses from within the School of Public Health first in order to develop and master the public health domains introduced in the Integrated Core Sequence.
