We are excited to introduce three new timely, flexible minors to our program offerings.  Nonprofit Leadership is perfect for students who have an interest in nonprofit organizations, community work, leadership, and/or social justice. Our minor in Health and Human Services is an ideal complement to many UB majors, providing students who plan to work in the health professions or in social or human services with a range of skills and experiences germane to their future careers. The minor in Strategic Media Messaging allows students to enhance their marketability in a rapidly evolving media landscape by developing skills in strategic storytelling and communication. Each minor is 18 credits and offers a number of elective options. View our minors
