Program Overview

Program Description:
The Global and Public Health program at Manipal University offers students a comprehensive overview of public health in India as well as a multi-disciplinary array of courses focusing on Indian culture, politics, and society. Based at one of India’s premier private universities, this program provides an integrated Indian campus experience and the unique opportunity to live and take courses with Indian peers.

Investigate global health issues alongside Indian peers through 15 credits of high-level coursework and integrated field visits to local clinics. Gain a critical understanding of international affairs, communications, and humanities from the Indian perspective. Integrate with Manipal students at every level to experience life as they do: in dormitories, classrooms, food courts, and student groups. Study Ayurveda and traditional Indian medicine in the region of its birth as an alternative to Western approaches. Participate in a field study trip across Karnataka that explores 15th century ruins, isolated tribal villages, and its booming business and political capital, Bangalore.

The program price includes tuition and fees, housing, pre-departure materials, guidance on applying for a visa, orientation, cell phone, weekly activities, field study trip and/or long weekend trip varying by term and program, textbooks, the services of a full-time resident staff, and medical and evacuation insurance.

Setting Description:
The Alliance program is based at Manipal University, known throughout India and around the world for its strong medical college and health science programs. A university town, Manipal is surrounded by lush tropical backwaters away from the hustle and bustle of India’s megacities. Located in the heart of coastal Karnataka, four hours south of Goa and just north of Kerala, Manipal offers stunning views of the Arabian Sea and nearby Western Ghats and provides an ideal rural location from which to study India’s public health challenges and rich cultural heritage.
