Integrative Health Studies Minor

The integrative health studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor open to all students. Courses offered by multiple departments on campus are designed to facilitate the study of complementary and alternative health modalities and their history, theory, cultural contexts, economics, and uses to promote wellness and prevent disease. The minor complements the study of any allied health field, and enriches the perspective of any student interested in his or her own well-being and in health and medicine as they interact with culture, economics, politics, and science.
