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, which is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.
The minor is an excellent choice for students pursuing other majors but who would like to consider the interdisciplinary aspects of health at the community level. A total of 18 credits are required for the completion of the public health minor.
