Minor in Gender, Health, and Health Care Equity
Healthcare evolves continually and capable professionals will be in high demand. In order to meet the national and international challenges posed by a rapidly changing field, people must be knowledgeable, able to innovate, and willing to learn. Upon completion of this minor, students will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to think critically about the complex intersections of gender, race, sexuality, and class in relation to health, illness, and health care.
Students earning a gender, women's, and sexuality studies (GWSS) major also may earn the minor; however, no more than 3 s.h. of work in GWSS courses can be counted toward the minor. The undergraduate minor in gender, health, and healthcare equity requires 15 s.h. in course work, including at least 12 s.h. completed at the University of Iowa. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Course work for the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.
