Minor in Public Health

The Minor in Public Health is open to all undergraduate students from other colleges with the exception of those majoring in public health.

Students must also consult their home colleges about acceptability and applicability of public health course credit toward their degrees.

A minimum of GPA of 2.00/4.00 for the 15 hours of course work is required to complete the minor.
