Public Health Program

Study Abroad

Public Health students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of international study opportunities to gain greater understanding of global health issues. For example, SCU-affiliated programs in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Copenhagen, and Geneva offer public health-related courses and immersion experiences.

  • Courses taken abroad can count as electives toward the major or minor.
  • Some study abroad immersion experiences may satisfy the internship requirement.
  • Download the Public Health and Study Abroad Planning Guide to help explore programs that could work for you. 
  • Contact the PHS Director or the SCU International Programs office for more information.
