Program Description

Health care is a growing sector of the economy and programs at the governmental, private, and international level are expanding to meet the needs of an increasingly elderly, disabled, and chronically ill population. Medical sociology is a specialty area within sociology concerned with the social dimensions of health, illness, and health care. After completing the medical sociology minor, students should be able to critically examine approaches used to prevent health problems and evaluate their relative merits.
