Program Overview

The minor’s interdisciplinary approach allows you to explore a wide selection of subjects such as anthropology, politics, biomedical science and psychology. The service-learning requirement offers you the opportunity to assist underserved populations, both in the U.S. and overseas. To satisfy the 4-week international component of the service requirement, students have traveled to Barbados, the Dominican Republic, India and Uganda to work with public health organizations that address issues such as HIV and maternal health. You’ll also complete a local community service learning program that will span at least 2 semesters at organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or the Special Olympics.
