Health for All


Our new public health minor is open to students from all majors.

Adelphi University’s College of Nursing and Public Health has launched a new minor in Public Health for undergraduate students who are interested in gaining a broader understanding of the public health field, the determinants of disease and the social factors that affect health.

Students complete 18 credits toward the minor by taking courses that cover the scope of public health issues, factors that contribute to existing and emerging issues, and applicable approaches to address issues affecting humans domestically and internationally.
