Graduate Minor in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health
About the Graduate Minor
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) populations hold a unique set of health concerns often unrecognized in standard health and public health practice. The graduate minor in LGBT Health focuses on these concerns recognizing the greater burden of disease these populations sometimes experience as well as the protective characteristics these communities often possess. The minor will review the current state of knowledge about LGBT health and critique research methods used to study sexual and gender minorities.
Graduate minors are designed to complement students' training by providing basic knowledge in topics outside their primary discipline. All matriculated graduate students in quarter programs are eligible to enroll.
Students must receive approval from their home program and the Dornsife School of Public Health and complete the necessary paperwork with the DSPH Academic Advising Team.
