Health Communications Minor

The process of communicating information to patients and colleagues is critical to successful healthcare efforts, no matter the setting. We understand the need for talented nurses who are adept at sharing knowledge, which is why we collaborate with the renowned Annenberg School for Communication to offer a Health Communication minor.

Our program

This minor expands your knowledge of communication process, theory, and behavior. It prepares you for professional roles developing cutting edge models for health behavior intervention as well as implementing patient education and health communications programs locally, nationally, and globally.


This is a six-course minor. In addition to a required course in research methodology, you’ll choose two of the following three courses: Critical Approaches for Popular Culture, Introduction to Communication Behavior, and Introduction to Mass Media and Society, and take three additional electives.
