Health

The health minor, open to all students, exposes you to current issues in nutrition, personal health, community health and psychology. You also can take several courses from the sciences, family and consumer science, nursing, psychology and sociology. Though not required, you can pick courses that focus on a niche that interests you, such as children, adults or community health. The minor is often paired with majors in nursing, community wellness, biology, psychology, elementary education and health science.
