Health Promotion Minor

The Health Promotion minor is open to all undergraduate students at Springfield College, except students in the Health Promotion for Schools and Communities major.  The minor is designed for students who have an interest in health and wellness to gain an in-depth understanding of  health-related topics, including community health education, sexuality, violence prevention, human disease, ethics, addiction, or environmental health.  These courses engage students with the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue advanced studies in health promotion, and the ability to apply health promotion concepts to their personal lives and chosen career path.
