The Minor in Public Health, offered by the Department of Public Health and Recreation, introduces students to public health through foundational courses. Students gain both a broad understanding of relevant career pathways and hands-on skills that can be applied in practice. Courses reflect the interdisciplinary and complementary nature of public health concepts and practices.
