Public Health Minor
The department of Health Management and Policy offers a minor in public health. Public health deals with the health of populations and focuses on health promotion and disease prevention, as well as access to the medical system. The minor introduces students to many of the foundation areas of public health and provides basic exposure to key concepts and skills in the five core disciplines of public health, as articulated by the Council on Education for Public Health. The minor is open to any baccalaureate student outside of the Health Management and Policy major at UNH. Students interested in this field may decide to continue their education with the Master of Public Health (MPH), which is also offered through HMP.
