Global health is an inherently interdisciplinary field exploring the major health problems, interventions, and policies impacting today’s world. The Department of Global Health therefore offers a wide assortment of coursework, all of which emphasizes the multidimensional character of human health.  We strive to provide students with robust analytical, intellectual, critical thinking, and practical skill sets through which to challenge health problems, preparing our students to be the next generation of leaders in the field.


The following schedule reflects Department of Global Health course offerings for the 2024-25 academic year and is subject to change. For the most up-to-date scheduling information, please check the UW Time Schedule for the current quarter schedule. 


Courses that are 100 to 400 level are for undergraduate students. Courses 500 and above are for graduate students.
