Health Services Minor Requirements

Non-Health Services majors may pursue any of the following health services-related minors: Health Administration, Health Promotion and Worksite Wellness, Interdisciplinary Gerontology, or Public Health.

Health Services majors seeking a specialty track may declare one or more of the health service-related minors, other than the specialty area they are completing (i.e. a Health Services major with a Health Administration specialty cannot also complete a Health Administration minor). Health Services majors with the Long Term Care specialty cannot declare the Interdisciplinary Gerontology minor or Health Administration minor (see Health Services Minors for Health Services Major students section)
