Minor Requirements: 15 Credits
Students declaring a minor in HEHM must have at least a 2.5 overall GPA. No grade lower than a C will count towards the minor. At least 12 credits for the minor must be taken with CU Denver faculty. Students may count ONE relevant transfer course toward their elective requirements for the minor.
Required Course: HEHM 3100: Introduction to Health Humanities - 3 Credits
This is a multidisciplinary course, introducing students to the ways various disciplines approach health and medicine. As part of their introduction, students will be required to attend three events at the Anschutz Medical Campus – such as lectures in the “Arts and Humanities” series, Mini Med School, or special programming. We recommend that students take HEHM 3100 before or concurrently with other courses for the minor.
Electives: 3 upper division courses from at least 2 different disciplines - 9 Credits
Electives include the courses below (the list is not exhaustive). One elective course can be a service learning course or independent study approved by an HEHM advisor.
*Capstone - 3 Credits
Certain courses below, designated with asterisks, are appropriate for a capstone course. They incorporate substantial original writing or research projects designed to promote broad reflection about the role of culture, society, and ethics in medicine. Students should choose asterisk courses at the culmination of their minor course work. If asterisk courses are not available, students may arrange an independent study with the approval of the Health Humanities advisor.
