Offered on campus
The Medical Humanities and Health Studies (MHHS) program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum to prepare undergraduates to understand the broader role and determinants of health and medicine in today's world.
This program offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree.
Humanities courses raise questions of how human beings deal with health, medical intervention, illness and death, while social science courses provide insight into the social, economic and cultural contexts of health, illness and health care. Students benefit from the wealth of faculty in the School of Liberal Arts and across the IUPUI campus who have strong teaching and research interests in the area of healthcare.
An academic foundation in MHHS can be valuable to students pursuing virtually any career path, including but not limited to social/economic research, medicine, allied health professions, dentistry, health law, medical social work, nursing, public health, and public policy studies. Our graduates have gone on directly to pursue degrees in pharmacy, medicine, occupational therapy, and other health professions, as well as to law and graduate school programs.
