The 18-credit minor in public health offers students the opportunity to study concepts and principles related to disease prevention, health promotion, and injury control. The minor provides students with a basic understanding of each of the core areas of public health, introduces students to career opportunities in the fields of global and community health, and prepares students for admission to graduate programs in public health.
