Public Health-related Minors
Overview and Goal
The overarching goal of the undergraduate public health program is to educate our students in an interdisciplinary framework of understanding and responding to global, regional, and local public health challenges. In addition to four majors, we offer four minors which comprise six courses. Of the current four minors, three qualify as minors in the social sciences, and one qualifies as a minor in the humanities.
- Social Sciences Minors:
- Health Policy
- Health, Behavior & Society
- Humanities Minor:
Note: Students may choose to major, or to minor, or to cluster within the Public Health-related programs, but they cannot do more than one. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the Public Health-related programs, no more than one course may overlap between a public health minor and another program of study.
A public health-related minor can easily integrate with an interest in the Health Professions, such as medical or dental school. Pre-health students may approach completing the necessary pre-health admission requirements in several different ways. It is to the applicants' advantage to tailor their schedules to reflect their specific needs and strengths. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with a Health Professions advisor in the College Center for Academic Support (CCAS) for further program planning assistance.
