Public health student in London

Public Health Scholars study abroad in England, India, or Kenya during the fall semester of their second year at AU. Our scholars learn firsthand how cultural perspectives inform the understanding and application of public health around the world.  

Students develop critical insight into global health issues and engage in some of the most pressing health dialogues. In addition, Public Health Scholars are provided cross-cultural orientations as they transition to and from their study abroad experiences.
