Health Promotion, Minor
The Health Promotion Minor is designed to assist students in gaining a deeper understanding of health issues and their impact on overall quality of life.

Students must achieve a 2.5 GPA in 26 credits of health and/or physical education coursework listed below to earn a minor in health promotion.
