UA Public Health Study Abroad Programs

UA Study Abroad
The University of Arizona’s Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health (CEPH accredited) and Study Abroad & Student Exchange are launching four exciting new study abroad programs and invite students from around the world to participate. The programs – in Latin America, Europe, and Asia – are the product of many thoughtful scholars whose goal is to share knowledge that will improve the health and well-being of all people.

Designed for students who are pursuing a degree in public health and/or have an interest in global health, these programs explore international health topics in a variety of academically rigorous global settings. Students have the opportunity to earn University of Arizona credit while living and studying abroad. The programs are currently accepting applications for Summer 2015, so please share these opportunities with your students.
