Minors

Social Sciences Interdisciplinary offers two minors that allow undergraduates to complement their major field of study with an additional specialization in Health and Human Services or Nonprofit Leadership.

Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Minors

Both minors require 18 credit hours and a minimum 2.0 GPA.

A minor in Health and Human Services helps to prepare students for a wide variety of careers in social services, health care, nonprofit work, counseling, education, or public service, as well as graduate study in the social sciences or health-related professional schools. 

Required courses: SSC 103 Introduction to Health and Human Services and five SSC electives (four of which must be at the 300- or 400-level).

A minor in Nonprofit Leadership provides exposure to a range of topics and practical skills related to working in and leading nonprofit organizations. The minor is ideal for students who wish to prepare for a career in the nonprofit space; who are interested in social or public service and care about advancing a social cause; or who plan to pursue graduate study in the social sciences or in professional schools.

Required courses: SSC 103 Introduction to Health and Human Services; SSC 235 Introduction to Nonprofit Organizations; and four additional courses from an approved list of electives.
