Medical anthropology is a vibrant subfield of anthropology with both academic and practical dimensions that explores the relationships among society, culture, health, illness, and medicine. This minor is designed to introduce undergraduates to the field of medical anthropology in order to prepare them for applied work or future research in the area of global health. This minor may be appropriate for students pursuing degrees in the health sciences, international relations, STS, or other social sciences such as anthropology, sociology or political science.
