Public Health (Minor)

Program Description

The Public Health cross-school minor provides students with an introduction to thinking about health issues across populations, the major causes of poor health outcomes, as well as approaches to protect the health and wellbeing of populations domestically and globally. Exploring the interdisciplinary nature of the field, students will be exposed to health promotion strategies, disease prevention interventions, epidemiological theories and more. Completion of the minor is useful preparation for careers in many fields including the health professions, social work, business, law, psychology and others.
