Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees, Minors, and Certificates

The Culture, Society and Health Minor offers students the conceptual and applied tools to understand the social and cultural contexts in which systems of health care, illness, and healing are embedded as well as to see health care, illness and healing as socio-cultural constructs.  This minor introduces students to methods of anthropological and sociological research that allows them to ask questions, to manage and analyze databases, to do health care-related research, to identify best practices, and to write grants.  Finally this minor will enhance students’ abilities to serve and understand health care needs of socially and culturally diverse patient populations and to appreciate the contributions of all levels of health care providers and support staff collaborating to achieve successful patient and organizational outcomes. 

Course Requirements for Minor (24-25 credits)

At least 3 courses of the eight required should be from Anthropology and 3 from Sociology; there is one required course in Philosophy.
