LMU students wishing to declare the Health and Society minor must meet with the program director. The director will sign the student’s Change of Program form provided the student meets certain academic standards that include having a minimum LMU GPA of 2.0 (C) and not otherwise on academic probation.

The minor requires the completion of five courses (units may vary depending on the mix of courses taken given different college policies on the number of units offered for courses). The only required course in the minor is HEAS 2000 - Introduction to Health and Society, which will introduce students to important conceptual frameworks and prepare them for interdisciplinary coursework. Students must adhere to the following program guidelines:

  1. In addition to Introduction to Health and Society, students may only take ONE additional lower-division course.
  2. No more than two courses may be taken from the same department or program.
  3. A minimum grade of C is required in Introduction to Health and Society in order to progress in the minor.
  4. An average grade of C (2.0) is required in courses included in the minor.
