Medical Humanities, (MHUA)BA or (MHUS)BS


Return to **Programs of Study Return to: **Programs of Study

A Medical Humanities major is offered as a collaboration between the College of Arts & Humanities  and the College of Sciences , providing students opportunities to pursue diverse career paths in both the humanities and sciences in careers such as medicine, health care policy, law, public health, management, patient advocacy, health journalism, bioethics, and health care consulting, as well as in academic careers in teaching, writing, and researching in universities in narrative medicine, literature and health, or history and medicine. Rather than limiting the student to a single focus, this interdisciplinary study allows for room to create a career path specific to the desires of the individual while laying a foundation for advanced degrees.

The determining factor for this degree will be the greater number of hours in either humanities or sciences.
