To declare the minor, arrange to see your major adviser and tell him or her that you want to declare the Global Health Minor. You will need to complete a simple form with your major adviser to be returned to the Registrar's office in Schmitz Hall.
Students wishing to declare the Global Health Minor must have a) completed 45 credits and b) have a declared major.
Yes, you may, but you must be sure to take at least one course per elective area with your total elective credits equaling a minimum of 19 credits.
No, you may take the core classes in any sequence. This includes the Perspectives in Global Health series (G H 401/402/403), which are nonsequential and may be taken in any order.
There are usually no restrictions unless there are too many overlapping credits. You may only have 15 credits from the minor overlap with the requirements for your major(s). Create a course plan with your major adviser about how you plan to finish your major, then visit a Global Health Minor adviser to talk about how you can fit classes towards the minor into your schedule.
You may submit an exception request via a catalyst survey to us. In addition, you must submit a syllabus for each course requested to firstname.lastname@example.org. Exception requests can only be submitted for elective courses. Exceptions will not be accepted for core coursework. All requests will be reviewed by the advisers and/or faculty director and if approved, will be reflected in DARS. It may take one to several weeks for an exception to be approved.
Any course at the 300, 400, or 500 level is considered upper division.
A quarter before you graduate, please email us and let us know that you would like a degree audit for the minor. If you have met all of the requirements of the minor, we will submit the approval with our signature via DARS. You must speak to the minor adviser to be approved to graduate with the minor, via email or in person, otherwise you will be in danger of not graduating due to an incomplete degree.
