Minor in Health Humanities

Program Summary

The pioneering Minor in Health Humanities provides an interdisciplinary exploration of human health and illness through the creative arts and humanities. Students’ understanding of the study of health — past and present — is developed by attending closely to how literature, philosophy, history and critical social science reveal the aesthetic, ethical and multicultural context of health, disability, medical research and policy.

Open to undergraduates from all programs, this minor’s curriculum develops students’ abilities to analyze theoretical and applied dimensions of health studies. They will gain a greater understanding of how the arts and humanities reveal the complex, interdisciplinary nature of human health and illness — in professional settings, scholarly context and in their own lived experience as health care consumers and potential patients.
