Programs with a Public Health Focus

Programs listed below offer a variety of courses in public health, ranging from public and community health readings to internships to health policy. These programs are designed for students who wish to apply various aspects of public health in a different cultural setting. The IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health offers several programs in the United Kingdom, Rwanda, Nicaragua, Sweden, and Swaziland that focus on either public health, health policy, or both.

Depending on your interests in health and study abroad, you may also want to consult a variety of other Health Sciences programs. Many summer and semester programs offer public health courses, but be sure to discuss these options with your academic advisor to determine if you can receive credit in your department. 

As an IUI student, you are eligible to participate in IU programs on all campuses. Below are offerings that may suit your study abroad interests.

This list above is not exhaustive for programs that could fulfill major credits for your degree. You can consider programs outside your major area of study to fulfill general education and/or elective credits or a semester program with English as the primary language of instruction.

You can also consider a non-IU program through various study abroad program providers or other universities. Read about Non-IU Programs for more information on how to start the application process.
