The Anthropology of Global Health Certificate offers students the opportunity to pursue the rapidly growing field of global health from an anthropological perspective, which examines global health problems by situating them in local contexts. Global health issues such as refugee health, global mental health, and emergent "superbugs" (e.g., Ebola, Zika), are of increasing concern and interest. Health is also the focus of the work of numerous public, private, non-governmental and non-profit organizations in the U.S. and abroad. This certificate allows UCF students interested in health to pursue this educational focus, regardless of their major.

Certificate Requirements

  • Students must earn a grade of "C" (2.0) or better in all courses used to satisfy the certificate. Students may make a request to the Undergraduate Coordinator to be granted the use of one C- toward the certificate requirements.
  • At least 12 hours used toward the certificate must be earned at UCF.
  • Only two anthropology courses can overlap for students enrolled in multiple anthropology programs (minors or certificates). (Note: The myKnight Audit cannot capture overlapping courses between two or more programs; therefore, students should have their program reviewed by the department before filing for graduation.)
  • Internship, Co-op, or Independent Study credit can only be used toward the certificate with prior approval from the certificate advisor.
  • One substitution for an elective course with another relevant course will only be allowed with prior approval from the certificate advisor.
  • Students should consult with the certificate advisor prior to graduation

Prerequisite Courses

  • Most courses for this certificate will have prerequisites completed as a part of a student's GEP requirement, as general electives, or a student may enroll into courses with consent of instructor.
