Academics at ESF: Undergraduate Minors
Public Health

Coordinator: Dr. Lee Newman

The Public Health minor will be available to students in all majors who want to increase their knowledge of the impact of public health issues and administration on human and human population health. Some of the directed elective courses have additional pre-requisites, and students must investigate this before making up their proposed course plan.
