Medical Sciences Minor

Medical Sciences offers an undergraduate-level minor in “Medical Sciences,”

The requirements for the minor may be found at THIS LINK :

Rationale for minor: The Medical Sciences minor provides undergraduate students with the background to formulate and implement a variety of opportunities related to the Life Sciences Initiative at Indiana University. Students interested in allied health, exercise science, medicine, dentistry, optometry and nursing will be able to gain basic knowledge that will prepare them well for their future careers. The knowledge, experiences and critical thinking skills gained in fulfilling the Medical Sciences minor will enhance the lives of students economically (as medical care professionals), educationally (health care teachers and trainers) and personally (as healthier individuals).

How do I sign up for the minor? A student who decides to earn the minor must ask the recorder in his or her academic school to add the Medical Sciences Minor to the student’s program/plan stack so that the student may be tracked during completion of the minor. So for example – if you are a School of Public Health (SPH) major, you or your major advisor must ask the SPH recorder to add the Medical Sciences minor to your electronic record.

Majors in the College of Arts & Sciences may add this minor by logging in to the College secured website located on the College Recorder’s web page:
