Health and Cultural Diversity - BS in Health Studies

Return to: BS in Health Studies  

This program is no longer accepting new students. Current students must complete their programs of study in accordance with Walden’s Time-to-Degree Completion policies.



The U.S. is growing increasingly diverse. To work effectively as a health professional in today’s multicultural world requires individuals to be able to practice within diverse settings and across cultures. This concentration allows students to examine the socio-cultural factors that impact health, such as ethnicity, culture, religion, education, communication, and gender and prepares them to anticipate and overcome challenges in cross-cultural situations.

Note: Students who choose this concentration should complete PSYC 1001 - Introduction to Psychology as a general education course or as an elective.
