Public Health - Minor Download to print
College of Public Health
The minor in Public Health provides undergraduate students exposure to the growing field of public health. The minor is a compliment to programs in nursing, business, digital sciences, journalism and a multitude of other areas, as health care concerns continue to be debated on a societal level.
The Public Health minor integrates key aspects of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, communities and individual. Students who choose to augment their current baccalaureate major by adding the public health minor increase their awareness of emerging issues in public health, the social and behavioral aspects of preventing disease, environmental health concepts, the changing U.S. health care system, and the monitoring of diseases in the community through applied public health research.
