Culture, Medicine, and Health
If you are a student in Social Work, Equity Studies, International Development Studies, Global Health, Disaster and Emergency Management or related fields that require critical social science skills for analyzing medical interventions, Medical Anthropology will be of interest to you.
This certificate provides a critical social science approach to health provision for those professional programs that deal with the health system, and health needs, of people from a broad range of cultural traditions. The certificate is a stand alone program that can be added to your degree after graduation, or in addition to your current program. The certificate program can be taken as a minor program in Medical Anthropology by those able to add a minor to their program.
This Cross-Disciplinary Certificate is composed of 24 credits of which 18 are at the 3000 level and above, with a requirement of a 4.00 grade point average.
