The Medical Sociology minor examines the social determinants of health and illness, and their impact on the delivery of health care and access to medical resources. The minor also examines the role social forces play in the way society views, treats, understands, and responds to illness and disease. This minor promotes an understanding of health and illness from a sociological perspective and prepares students for careers and graduate school in health related fields.
