How to Declare the Minor
See the academic advising page to determine your academic advisor (determined by the student's campus and last name).
Send your prospective advisor a brief statement of interest (approximately 300 words) on why you'd like to add the minor to your degree. Note: Admission into the minor does not guarantee entry into public health courses as course registration depends on meeting course pre-requisites and course availability.
