Do you want to study the human side of illness, death, and medicine? Interested in a health career? Medical Humanities majors examine fundamental and far-ranging questions about health and illness, from personal health struggles to global medical systems.
Explore how different social contexts, belief systems, historical traditions, and literary works shape our understanding of what it means to be sick and how healthcare should be practiced.
Our faculty will also teach you the principles and real-world applications of bioethics, compassionate care, narrative medicine, patient advocacy, art therapy, and much more!
