Health Humanities explores the human condition of health from a variety of critical and creative perspectives. The Health Humanities Minor asks questions about health, illness, disability, and health care across the sciences, arts, humanities, and social sciences. Core courses are grounded in the humanities, whereas electives draw not only from the humanities but also from the arts, social sciences, and natural sciences so that the Health Humanities minor complements any undergraduate major and ensures that students build a complex understanding of what it means to be well in physical, mental, social, and cultural contexts. Each student has the opportunity to chart a path through the minor coursework that supports their intellectual curiosity, professional goals, and personal wellbeing. The Health Humanities Minor prepares students for careers throughout the healthcare industry as well as careers in policy, administration, education, and advocacy where health and health policy play a role.
