Health, Humanities and Society Minor


Learn how to think capaciously and creatively about health.

The health, humanities, and society minor is designed for students who would like to learn how to think capaciously and creatively about health using the rigorous, precise, and flexible skills trained by the social sciences and the humanities.

The social sciences teach students to think about the social, economic, and political factors that structure health conditions and outcomes in particular societies.

The humanities train students to navigate the complexities of interpersonal interaction and their ethical implications, to relate the micro to the macro and texts to contexts, to historicize encounters, to communicate accurately and effectively across a variety of media, and to engage in creative analytical thinking about healthcare.
