Sociology Degrees

BA in Sociology — Minor in Public Health

Public Health addresses the intersection of healthcare, social science, and public policy, featuring classes in social epidemiology, global health and public health and society. The program covers a broad range of disciplines and offers students the flexibility to focus on the areas of public health that they find most interesting and most important. Public Health fosters students’ ability to view modern medical care in a broader societal context and to use their knowledge of underlying issues to inform their behavior in the health care community.

This minor will provide students with a well-rounded perspective of the social, political, and policy issues surrounding healthcare, and is ideal for students interested in medicine, public health, and other health professions, healthcare administration, policy analysis, and public administration. Pre-medical students can also use this major to inform themselves about new aspects of health care.
