Public Health Minor

Completing a 19-credit interdisciplinary minor in public health can be a first step to a career in public health, or the minor can enhance a career in related fields such as nursing, law, and public policy. A public health minor pairs well with fields such as sociology, public policy, communications, human biology, English, economics, globalization studies, philosophy, business, and computer science, but it's open to all Nazareth undergraduates.
