Global Community Health

The Global Community Health Major equips students to utilize holistic health and wellness education to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ cross-culturally. Students combine the Intercultural Studies Core and foundational Public Health courses to prepare for working cross-culturally in mission and community health evangelism (CHE) and discipleship.
