The Minor in Public Health is available to all University students with a Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or above and provides students with opportunities to develop broad competencies in areas of study commonly identified with public health. The minor is designed in part for students wishing to gain knowledge and skills for employment in a number of fields that intersect with public health or in preparation for graduate study in public health. The minor requires completion of 18 credits, including 12 credits above the 300 level. To be admitted into the minor, a student must submit a Declaration of Minor form to his or her faculty advisor, the Public Health Minor coordinator, and the Dean’s office in his or her home college.
For more information, or to obtain a form to declare the Minor in Public Health, contact the minor coordinator, Dr. Maureen Thompson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note: students who pursue a minor in public health may not pursue a minor in health and wellness. Public health majors may not pursue a public health minor.
