About University of California, San Diego - Global Health Program
ANTHROPOLOGY stands at the nexus between the social sciences, biological sciences, and humanities. UC San Diego's Department of Anthropology is dedicated to understanding the worldwide diversity of social institutions and cultural traditions, past and present, as well as to studying our nearest nonhuman relatives.We offer undergraduate and graduate education in archaeology, as well as in biological, social, cultural, psychological, political, and linguistic anthropology. Students have the opportunity to participate in Anthropology faculty's field sites and study-abroad programs. Doctoral training for graduate students is designed to provide the theoretical background and the methodological skills necessary for a career in professional research and teaching anthropology at the university level, and for the application of anthropological knowledge to contemporary problems.
GLOBAL HEALTH PROGRAM (GHP) is an interdisciplinary program at UC San Diego currently administered through Anthropology. GHP is the first of its kind within the University of California system and one of only a handful in North America where students can gain a comprehensive initiation to the exciting and rapidl...y growing field of Global Health. It is student-centered and is designed to be intellectually comprehensive, integrating the social sciences, biological sciences, and humanities. Courses combine academic and experiential learning, striking a balance between acquisition of hard skills, critical thinking, and real world knowledge. Degrees offered in the program (BA, BS, MA) provide students with an in depth understanding of factors related to illness, health, and healing from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective that transcends national borders and regional interests and takes cultural difference and diversity fully into account.
