Students are required to take a core course, TRMD6030: Multidisciplinary Applications of Global Health and Social Justice (3 credits), and select two additional elective courses offered at Tulane, one of which must be in a school other than their own. If taking a two-credit elective course, it is permissible to satisfy the final credit through an independent study. Students are also required to attend a seminar series that will expose them to global health issues, as presented from the perspective of various disciplines.
Via the required global health experience, students have the opportunity to put into practice some of what they learn in the classroom, as well as gain first-hand experience in conducting research and/or working in the field of global health. If a student has substantial previous experience in a global health-related field, it is possible to submit a paper describing this work in lieu of completing an additional global health experience. A five-page analysis will be required of all students upon completion of their global health experience. Admissions to the global health certificate program is open to all graduate or post-graduate students at Tulane. For an application to enroll in the certificate program, click here .
