Minor Community Health Minor

The minor in community health is designed to prepare students in the ever-changing world of healthcare and health behavior as practitioners and offers courses in such areas as population health, health equity, environmental health, health promotion, health policy, and health administration.  The goal of the minor is to emphasize healthcare administration, operations and public health preparedness, as well as communication and critical thinking. It is possible to complement the minor with courses in management, environmental health, or occupational health.  The minor is especially attractive to students in other majors such as psychology, nursing, dental hygiene, engineering, occupational and technical studies, and business who may reasonably anticipate public health, health administration, and community health as core components of their duties. The minor prepares the students for an experience at internship sites in public health or the healthcare industry.
