Public Health, Minor

Saint Louis University's minor in public health provides students with an introduction to public health and its role in disease prevention and health promotion, both at the global and local levels. The minor is offered through the College for Public Health and Social Justice, accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.

A minor in public health is an excellent choice for students pursuing other majors who would like to consider the interdisciplinary aspects of health at the community level. A total of 18 credits are required to complete SLU's public health minor.
