The Anthropology of Global Health Certificate offers students the opportunity to pursue the rapidly growing field of global health from an anthropological perspective, which examines global health problems by situating them in local contexts. Global health issues such as refugee health, global mental health, and emergent “superbugs” (e.g., Ebola, Zika), are of increasing concern and interest. Health is also the focus of the work of numerous public, private, non-governmental and non-profit organizations in the U.S. and abroad. This certificate allows UCF students interested in health to pursue this educational focus, regardless of their major.
