How to Declare the Minor
Admission to the minor requires a minimum 2.5 GPA. If you meet this minimum, please 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.
