Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
The Minor concentration in Social Studies of Medicine is an interdisciplinary concentration of courses designed to address the needs of (1) undergraduates preparing for one of the health professions, and (2) social sciences and humanities undergraduates who want to gain a broader interdisciplinary understanding of medicine and health issues.
The Minor concentration in Social Studies of Medicine presents medicine as a complex network of institutions, cultures, and political relations embedded in the institutions, cultures, and political relations of the larger society. Courses are divided into three groups: History of Medicine, Anthropology of Medicine, and Sociology of Medicine.
The Minor consists of 18 credits. Students are required to take 6 credits from each of the three groups.
