The public health minor offers students courses in the areas of public health, behavior change, and healthy lifestyles. It is designed for students entering into careers other than health promotion and education, who wish to have a formally-recognized educational training in health. The minor in health is an ideal complement to degrees in gerontology, education, communication, and psychology.
