Human health has biological, interpersonal and societal dimensions. It’s no surprise, then, that Dickinson students take health-related courses and perform health research in a variety of disciplines. The health studies program assists students in identifying opportunities to pursue and expand their health interests and obtain hands-on experience both in the laboratory and in the community. Health studies faculty offer a range of perspectives on health so students can examine its complexity and connect it with the arts, the economy, ethics, politics, psychology and society. This is essential background for students with career interests in aid organizations, business and government, as well as medicine, mental health and public health.
