Public Health Minor Requirements

To earn the interdisciplinary minor students must complete the following requirements (with details provided below):

Five Units of Coursework in Three Areas:

  1. Fundamentals of Public Health (1 unit)
  2. Research Methods and Skills (1 unit)
  3. Any three (3) electives from the approved electives list.

One Experiential Learning Component (ELC)
(The ELC requirement has been waived for the 2021-2022 academic year.)

Final Reflection Statement


All PH courses count as electives as well as any course from the approved list of electives outside the Public Health Department, e.g. ANTH 3072, GS 268, PSYC 256, and SOC 275.  Non-PH designated electives must each come from different departments or programs.  Only one course listed in your major(s) may count toward your minor.  A maximum of two (2) courses at the 100-level can be counted toward the minor.

No more than two approved courses from other institutions or University-approved study abroad/off-campus programs may transfer into your minor.  Permission from a Public Health Program Coordinator is required for transfer.
