Health Studies

The minor in health studies will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about the complex issues related to the current and future environment of contemporary health care. This minor is appropriate for:

  1. Any university student who seeks to learn more about health care and health care delivery as a current/future consumer.
  2. Pre-health students who will become future health professionals and must have a broad and more integrative background for the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the field.
  3. Non pre-health students who can become more educated about healthcare and, thus, become more competitive and better prepared to enter one of the countless professional fields that connect to the environment of contemporary health care.
  4. Empowered health consumers and advocates for family and friends in future health care interactions.

This minor is not recommended for nursing students who already have a curriculum steeped in content on healthcare and healthcare delivery.
