Student Engagement

For Undergraduates

Global health presents multifaceted problems that need multidisciplinary solutions. HGHI provides Harvard undergraduates with opportunities to think critically and to engage actively with public and global health challenges. HGHI collaborates with departments across the university, student organizations, and partners around the world to facilitate unique opportunities for learning. Students learn to work in a global community through coursework, research positions, internships, interactive workshops, and other experiential learning opportunities. It will take leaders from all disciplines and sectors to solve global health problems; HGHI is helping prepare the next generation of practitioners and leaders in global health.
