The goal of the general Public Health minor is to introduce students to the field of public health. Public health professionals seek to prevent disease and promote health and well-being among communities. This is important for human and environmental health. This minor provides students with a range of courses designed to understand important public health concepts such as epidemiology, health disparities, social determinants of health, and health policy. And, students can tailor the minor by selecting a course that most interests them and prepares them for their future career aspirations.
