The Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health is pleased to announce the creation of a minor in public health. Courses will be offered in College Station beginning summer 2015.

The public health minor is based on a philosophy of health promotion and disease prevention to improve the quality of life of individuals, families and communities. Students will receive an introduction to the foundational and social issues of public health as well as gain an understanding of threats to public health and the role that our environment plays in both the practice and applications of public health.

Students from a wide variety of majors will find a public health minor attractive as it assists them in broadening their understanding of patterns of public health and its role in society. Students anticipating careers in science, health professions, law, military, research, public and community affairs and civil service will all gain valuable insights from the minor and how public health benefits our communities, state and nation.
