Breaking Down Boundaries

Princeton’s vibrant Global Health Program brings domestic and international health issues to life through interdisciplinary research and teaching, hands-on learning and a focus on policy. The program is administered by the Center for Health and Wellbeing, an interdisciplinary unit within the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.

The Global Health Program serves the broader Princeton community and offers students the opportunity to earn a certificate in Global Health and Health Policy. GHP is a hub for students interested in global health — whether they are seeking to participate in a summer internship in the United States or abroad, take health-related courses, find support for health-related thesis research, get involved with Princeton’s campus activities and events, or pursue plans for a career in global health.

Coronavirus Note: Princeton University is actively monitoring the situation around coronavirus (Covid-19) and the evolving guidance from government and health authorities, in keeping with our commitment to ensure the health and safety of all members of the University community. The latest University guidance for students, faculty and staff is available on the University’s Emergency Management website.
