Global Health Major Notes:
Courses can only count toward one requirement, even if listed as options to multiple requisites of the program
2. Not all courses listed have priority enrolment for Global Health majors. Students are responsible for checking priority of courses and meeting course prerequisites for courses they wish to take.
3. The Global Health major cannot be paired with any other Human Biology Program managed major program.
4. Effective Fall 2021, courses associated with New College's African Studies program will have the new "AFR" designator.
