The School of Communication (SoC) in collaboration with the School of Nursing and Health Studies (SONHS) offers a minor in health communication, which is available to all students.  Students must have a minimum of a 2.0 UM GPA to declare the minor and they must earn a C or higher in each course for the minor for it to count; a grade of C- or lower is not acceptable for the health communication minor.  Students should meet with an academic advisor in the Office of Student Services (OSS) to discuss any questions related to their degree requirements.
