Enrich your educational experience
Pursuing a minor in public health provides a strong foundation in the relationships between culture and health and how the design and implementation of health policies affect the general public. The public health minor provides students with a general background in public health while examining environmental issues, health disparities, quality of health care programs and accessibility to health care.
Public health is a broad discipline, and professionals in the field often find themselves involved in everything from identifying diseases to creating public policy to helping refugees integrate into new communities. Adding a minor in public health is a good companion to other Ecampus online degree programs, such as:
- Environmental economics and policy or environmental sciences – Focus on environmental health factors including indoor and outdoor pollution, climate change and other external factors that can affect the world's population.
- Human development and family sciences, psychology or sociology – Set yourself apart with the holistic knowledge of issues that influence the overall health of communities or regions to better communicate with underserved populations.
The online public health minor requires a total of 29 credit hours. All courses are offered online throughout the year including summer term. View the public health curriculum page for requirements and course details or view all of Oregon State's online courses in public health.
