The minor in Health Care Services is interdisciplinary in nature with aging studies, health, psychology, social work, and sociology courses. Consisting of both traditional and pre-health science coursework, the program is designed to meet the needs of students wishing to work in a variety of health care settings.
Fifteen semester hours are required to complete the minor in Health Care Services.
Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
