Health Minor

At Goshen College, we believe that creating healthy habits is central to developing a full life. If you have a passion to improve personal and societal health, the health minor may be right for you.

If you choose to study health, you’ll study and apply principles of fitness, health, anatomy and physiology. You’ll also learn to effectively perform first aid, CPR and athletic training. Courses will focus on nutrition, health education, school and community health, human sexuality, anatomy and physiology.

Advocating a healthy lifestyle means empowering others to empower themselves. When you graduate, you’ll have the knowledge and experience to make a positive impact on the health of yourself and others.
