The Bi-College Health Studies Multidisciplinary Minor, a collaboration between Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges, brings together students and faculty to explore the intertwined areas of health, disease, and social justice. We offer unparalleled training for students interested in confronting complex real-world health problems.
Multidisciplinary in approach and collaborative in spirit, our curriculum embraces the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities. Students learn how to think about health from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and with an appreciation of its many dimensions.
