Medical Sociology

Medical Sociology Minor (Minimum of 15 Credit Hours)

This minor is open to any student who is not already majoring in Sociology. It is especially tailored to students pursuing careers in health care who are interested in learning about how to better understand the broad patient population which they will experience, while improving the health of others by better appreciating how health and illness are experienced in society. Specifically, students will learn about how things like gender, race, class, ability, sexual orientation, and educational attainment – among other factors – result in differential access to and quality of health care.
