The Health Humanities minor offered by Simmons University and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science (MCPHS) adds humanistic perspectives to the understanding of wellness and healthcare through interdisciplinary scholarship and research.
The future of healthcare is now
The Health Humanities minor focuses on ethical leadership practice, sensitivity to cultural impacts on health and wellness, and communication skills, helping future practitioners bridge the gap between patients and providers.
This minor includes a Capstone for independent research, and students will be encouraged to take optional internship experiences that explore the intersection of health and culture.
