Global Public Health: Home

Welcome!

UCSD’s Global Health Program (GHP) is an interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate degree program bringing together partners from UCSD’s School of Medicine, Rady School of management, Biological Sciences, Department of Anthropology, and the UCSD Global Health Institute.  The program offers the following degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Global Health (BA), a Bachelor of Science in Global Health (BS) a Global Health Minor, and a Master of Arts in Global Health (MA).  The program website explains that this program “provide[s] students with an in‐depth understanding of factors related to illness, health, and healing from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective that transcends national borders and regional interests and takes cultural difference and diversity fully into account.”  GHP courses and research examine health care, health education, environmental effects on health, infections disease, reproductive health, mental health, health inequalities, medical and health issues related to natural disaster and political violence, and indigenous healing practices.

Important Information!

UC LIBRARY SEARCH:

Please note that we recently migrated to a new catalog system.  For help learning how to use it:

PLEASE CONSULT THE ATTACHED GOOGLE DOCUMENT FOR DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ON USING UC LIBRARY SEARCH.

 

REMOTE ACCESS TO LIBRARY RESOURCES:

In order to access the Library's electronic resources from an off-campus computer, you need to set up Virtual Private Network (VPN) access.

In order to access UCSD Librarians and UCSD Library Services as quickly as possible, use the Library’s Ask Us page which has recently been redesigned in light of the critical need for online and timely information.

Additional tips for optimal connectivity:

1. Please make sure you have downloaded the VPN client and have it set for 2-Step Secured allthruUCSD.  See the necessary directions/links here.  To make sure you have properly set up your VPN, test it here.  If possible, make sure you also set up Duo Two-Step Login (instructions and help here).

2. Please make sure you are using the best browser for your particular computer, e.g., Safari for a mac, or Chrome for a chromebook.

3.  If you run into weird problems, try switching browsers and if it doesn't fix it, contact the Library.
