Being healthy is important to all of us. Our health is influenced by a range of individual and behavioural factors as well as physical and social environments. Studying health will help you to develop skills and knowledge to make decisions about your own health, inform others, and also to recognise the importance of health in society. You will also become aware of how to support and promote healthy behaviours of others. The minor in Health provides you with an understanding of the individual and societal influences on health and human development. You will study areas covering adolescent health, sexuality and relationships, social bases of health and health promotion and policy.
