The purpose of this interdisciplinary minor is to educate students about the
health problems of citizens residing in urban environments and related
health topics. Public health concepts orient the urban health courses in the
minor. Health-focused, service learning programs are provided through the
La Salle Neighborhood Nursing Center. The urban health focus of some
courses illustrates a commitment to urban health care for underserved and
vulnerable populations and reflects the Lasallian mission of humanistic
Catholic Christian education.
To minor in Health Science, the student must complete six courses within
the discipline. At least two of the six must be at the 300-400 level, no more
than two may be at the 100 level, and the remaining two or three may be at
the intermediate level.
