The undergraduate minor in public health is intended to provide a broad exposure to the concepts of public health and the role of public health in assuring health, improving health, and protecting against threats to health. As a professional field, public health provides opportunities for careers that are important in the health of the community, nation, and world. As a field of scientific inquiry, public health offers opportunities to engage in research from many disciplinary perspectives. The undergraduate minor provides students with an understanding of the connections between public health and every aspect of life as well as the analytic approaches to understanding these connections. The minor can be an asset to students in determining their interest in graduate studies as well as entering into public health careers or other health-oriented careers after graduation. Students who wish to declare this minor should schedule an appointment with an advisor in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences' Student Services Office in BEC A332.
