Men's Health (minor)
The Men’s Health minor provides an academic perspective on the lives of men and boys, with a focus on men’s health in all dimensions: physical, mental, emotional, social, sexual, etc. The minor addresses the unique set of challenges men and boys face in creating a healthy life, by identifying and profoundly exploring the key determinants of health for men and boys across cultural lines, using scholarly resources. Students will learn the manifestations of dis-ease in men, as well as the impact on other men, women, children, animals, and the environment.
The minor prepares students with competencies in men’s behavioral health changes such as diet and lifestyle, men’s empowerment to lead other men, fathering skills, working through addictions affecting men, and comparing/contrasting definitions of manhood with respect to a wide range of cultural beliefs.
Transforming the lives of men and boys- what could be more meaningful?!
This minor requires a catalog major and a completed and approved IDP proposal.
