The Culture and Health minor will offer an interdisciplinary curriculum that trains students in the cross-cultural diversity of experiences surrounding health, illness, and treatment. The minor will increase cultural competency of future health care providers, give them firsthand experience engaging health and disease in nontraditional settings, and provide them with tangible skills designed to help them have success in professional training. In addition to targeting pre-health and pre-med students, the minor will offer students in the social sciences a focused track to pursue careers in community health research, advocacy, and development work in the government and nonprofit sectors.
