Health, Medicine, and Society (Minor)

Degree Level:

The Health, Medicine, and Society minor is a program of study for undergraduate students who are interested in the health and medical professions.

Humanities and social science perspectives on health and medicine equip students to address important topics, such as the ethics of biomedical research, the nature of medical discovery, the relationships among race, health, and gender, the global impact of public health, and the cost of health care delivery.

Understanding these and related issues is essential to developing informed, thoughtful, and ethically enlightened leaders in the fields of health and medicine.
