Related Curriculum and Programming

Miami University offers a diverse curriculum that may be of special interest to students pursuing careers in healthcare professions. Beyond the courses that are are part of the programming offered by the Mallory-Wilson Center or are requirements of the Premedical Studies Co-major, several other programs, departments and divisions offer relevant healthcare-related programming.

Within that programming, students can enrich their academic experience by pursuing minors such as Global Health Studies, Medical Humanities, Medical Sociology, Gerontology (including additional tracks in Aging and Health and in Aging and Public Policy), and Ethics, Society and Culture (offered by the department of Philosophy) or explore majors in Public Health, Speech Pathology and Audiology, and Medical Laboratory Science. Even if a student does not want to complete a minor or pursue a different major, there are hidden gems of health-related courses within these programs that demonstrate the richness of healthcare-related courses at Miami University.
