Ghana is one of Africa’s rising, more diverse economies. The first independent African state, Ghana serves as a model for peace and democracy on the continent. While rural villages function within centuries-old cultural traditions and limited resources, upscale neighborhoods in Accra show the impact of globalization in West Africa. These characteristics make Ghana ideal to study global and development studies, public health and social services, and environmental sustainability.

Improve health for all people by promoting wellness, and learning how to eliminate avoidable diseases and death. Study trends like epidemiological and demographic transitions, the rising burden of disease and climate change.
