The Global Health Humanities Gateway (GHHG) highlights the best advantages of a liberal arts education by linking the humanities and the sciences, and offering insight into the political, social, and cultural contexts of health care. Global Health Humanities uses the critical and analytical tools of the humanities to examine and interpret health-related discourses, practices, and inequities in their cultural, social, political, and historical contexts. This program leverages Trinity’s unique strengths as a liberal arts college located in a diverse capital city with strong and vibrant transnational communities and global connections. The Gateway also relies on a multi-decade relationship with the Caribbean through Trinity’s program in Trinidad at the University of the West Indies to provide global experiences and broad perspectives.
Become a Global Citizen
Members of the GHHG engage with the Caribbean community in Hartford, Connecticut and learn as global citizens through a semester abroad, in Trinidad. Students develop the intellectual framework and openness to work with global, transnational communities from a variety of provenances. This three-semester program emphasizes the interconnection of the sciences and the humanities, and the essentialness of bringing a humanistic perspective to science-dominant fields.
