Click on this link to view the requirements of this minor. Please note that course offerings are subject to change. Some courses for the minor may be limited to students within the department or major that offers them or may have mandatory prerequisites. If these constraints prevent you from enrolling in a course, please contact the instructor of that course to discuss options for your enrollment.

Remember, only two 2000-level courses may be counted toward this minor. All students in the minor must take WST 2322, Intro to Health Disparities. That means only one elective course may be taken at the 2000-level and the rest must be at the 3000-level or above.
