The Public Health minor is designed to introduce students to the core coursework in the field of public health including introductory courses in Public Health, Global Health, and Epidemiology. The minor is open to all students and could be used as the basis for further work or study in public health or merely enhance their broad liberal arts training.
A minor in Public Health would allow students to merge their interests in public health with a major in a related or separate area. The coursework includes current courses offered for the major in Public Health and other courses associated with the other Health Sciences Majors. It is the goal that students will combine this minor with their major to further their preparation for their individual career goals.
