Advisor Tips:

  • Before going abroad, it is always a good idea to consult with your major advisor about your study abroad plans. For some programs, such as UCEAP, you are required to meet with your major advisor as part of the application process. You may be able to fulfill many major requirements while abroad so it’s recommended, and sometimes mandatory, to create an academic plan with your major advisor while applying for a particular study abroad program.
  • While abroad, you may need to remain in contact with your major advisor for academic advising regarding specific courses.
  • Be sure to keep all course descriptions and syllabi!

Global Disease Biology allows students to study disease and its relationship to the health of people, animals, plants and the environment in a global context. The program uses an interdisciplinary approach to advance understanding of diseases, societal and personal impacts, and the science behind discoveries, causes, evolution, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases. Students interested in the health sciences will integrate concepts from multiple disciplines to learn how to solve global disease and health challenges using innovative approaches.
