Global health education has been expanding rapidly and several universities have created an undergraduate major degree (bachelor’s degree) in global heath or global health studies. In this review, the authors describe these global health programs, their student characteristics, as well as the key educational competencies, program requirements, and core global health courses. Based on program reviews and discussions, they identify seven recommendations for the development and expansion of an undergraduate major in global health and discuss issues that have arisen in the curricular development of these programs that warrant further exploration.
