Weinberg to offer adjunct major in global health studies at start of 2017-18 academic year

By Allyson Chiu

Beginning Fall Quarter, students will be able to declare adjunct majors in global health studies, the University announced.

The adjunct major comprises 11 courses: seven in global health — four core classes and three electives — and four in related classes outside global health, said anthropology Prof. William Leonard, director of the global health studies program.

The adjunct major was created due to the popularity of the minor, which now has around 300 students enrolled each year, vice president for international relations Dévora Grynspan said. Student demand has been a driving force in the growth of the global health studies program, Grynspan said.
