Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors and Graduate Programs Alphabetically

Advisement for the minor is available from the Health Sciences  School. 

The public health minor requires:

  • Complete at least 24 credits with grades of C or better.

  • Public health majors are not eligible to earn a minor in public health.

The minor in public health complements any program of study, allowing students to learn the key processes in public health, including policy, program planning and evaluation, health communication, and advocacy. Courses in the minor align with the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) competencies and students wishing to take the credentialing exam to become a Certified Health Education Specialist (NCHEC) can use credits in the minor toward their eligibility.


This checklist is an unofficial tool for planning. Matriculated students and advisors should consult the Academic Requirements Report in GullNet before and after registering for classes each semester to track academic progress.
