Increase your awareness of the human, social, and cultural dimensions of health care, through the 15-credit hour interdisciplinary minor in Medical Humanities and Health Studies. It provides an exciting opportunity for you to work in close conjunction with faculty who have strong health- and medicine-focused teaching and research interests.
MHHS-M 301 Perspectives on Health, Disease and Healing
The course utilizes the humanities and social science disciplines to provide students with a broader understanding of the many facets of health and disease, suffering and dying, as well as the art and science of healing.
MHHS Upper-Level Course
In addition to MHHS-M 301, the minor requires a second upper-level MHHS course. Students may take any 3-credit hour MHHS 3XX- or 4XX-level course to fulfill this requirement. This growing list of courses includes:
Electives (9 credits)
Choose one course from the list of Humanistic perspectives courses, and one from Social Science perspectives courses. The third elective may be selected from either the list or from other electives. Choose no more than one (1) course from any one department or discipline.
Please apply for the MHHS minor at least one semester before you plan to graduate. Submit online the School of Liberal Arts declaration form.
