Graduate Minor in Health Economics

About the Graduate Minor

The graduate minor in Health Economics is designed by the Dornsife School of Public Health in partnership with the LeBow College of Business to give graduate students economic-based skills to assess health, healthcare services, policies, and interventions. Students are required to take two core health economics courses and select two additional courses to develop additional economic understanding. Students with little or no recent pre-program economics coursework are strongly encouraged to include ECON 601 Managerial Economics or ECON 610 Microeconomics as one of their two elective courses.
