Minor: History of Medicine and Health
Effective Winter 2014
A minor in History of Medicine and Health is not open to students with a major or any other minor in the Department of History, or students taking a Minor in Science, Technology, and Society.
Prerequisites to the Academic Minor
Requirements for the Minor
Take one of two 4-credit survey courses: HISTORY 234 (History of Medicine in the Western World from the 18th Century to the Present) or HISTORY 284 (Sickness and Health in Society: 1492 to the Present). Students may take both of these courses for minor credit but only one is required.
Five additional courses (at least 15 credits), to be chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor. Three of these courses must be from the approved list of classes that count for the Medicine and Health minor. One of these courses must be a History distribution course that is not on the approved list. The fifth course can be either from the approved list or another general history course (a minimum of four and maximum of five additional courses from the Medicine and Health list).
At least two of the five additional courses must be at the 300-level or higher.
AP credit: AP credits may not be used to satisfy requirements of the minor.
Conditions: Five of the six courses must be taken in-residence at the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor, or must count as in-residence credit (i.e., relevant courses taken through UM-sponsored CGIS programs abroad).
