History, Health, & Humanities Minor
This innovative minor provides students with the tools and perspectives to study clinical issues through a different lens than the one provided by natural or social sciences, and amplifies the humanities components of the Judgement, Inquiry, Voice, and Engagement pillars that define the “Penn Advantage.”
Penn Nursing’s History, Health, & Humanities minor forges a bridge between the humanities and sciences to nourish students intellectually, build self-awareness, develop empathy, and consider social justice-related phenomena through a new lens. Throughout the minor’s six courses, it offers formalized opportunities for writing, both reflective and analytical, that extend beyond those available within the required nursing curriculum.
Students enrolled in the minor will be considered Bates Center associates and will be invited to lunches, dinners, and other events with visiting scholars and faculty.
