The Health and Human Values Interdisciplinary Minor

The interdisciplinary minor helps you grasp how legal, economic, and political institutions influence the production, distribution and delivery of health care services.

Health and human values provides you with a foundation in epidemiological principles, and teaches you how to evaluate and apply the principles of scientific integrity.

Our classes offer an interdisciplinary approach to teaching our students about health, where we strongly encouraged you to take classes that offer applied experiences in health care settings. You are invited to suggest courses for your minor that are not included in the course list.
