Public Health Minor

About the Minor

The public health minor for undergraduate students is a great opportunity to infuse public health, community health, and other integral health concepts into a student's curriculum. A minimum of 18 units are required for the undergraduate minor in Public Health, and you need to earn a minor GPA of at least a 2.0 by graduation..

Courses that are required for the minor are: HPS/CPH 178, HPS/CPH 200, EPID/CPH 309, and 9 additional units of HPS/CPH/EPID/BIOS/PHPM/EHS upper-division coursework that you pick.

How to Declare the Minor

Admission to the minor requires a minimum 2.5 GPA.  If you meet this minimum, please send your prospective advisor a brief statement of interest (approximately 300 words) on why you’d like to add the minor to your degree.

Admission into the minor does not guarantee entry into HPS/CPH/EPID/BIOS/PHPM/EHS courses.
