Offered through CIEE, the Community Public Health and Development and Globalization programs are approved UW affiliate programs. On these programs you can choose one of two tracks: Community Public Health or Development and Globalization.

The Community Public Health program in Thailand provides an attractive option for students interested in studying community health issues and public health policy in an Asian context in English coupled with learning Thai as a second language.

The Development and Globalization program helps students to understand the complexities concerning development and globalization issues and the role we play as global citizens. You'll also take a Thai language course.

You will be working closely with both IAP and CIEE on this program. You can access the program's Community Public Health and Development and Globalization pages through the CIEE website to learn more about the academics, housing, excursions and activities, and location.
