The College of Public Health offers minors to help complement a student's major coursework.  Minors are 15-16 hours of additional coursework not taken for credit in the major. 

  • A minor must contain at least 9 hours of upper division course work (3000-level or above).
  • Courses taken to satisfy Core Areas I through V may not be counted as course work in the minor.
  • Courses taken in Core Area VI may be counted as course work in the minor.

All courses used to satisfy the minor must be passed with a grade of "C" (2.0) or better.

How to declare a minor:

Currently enrolled students who would like to declare or remove a minor in public health should login to Athena and click the My Programs tab.  From there you will be able to add/delete majors, emphasis areas, minors, and certificates.  If you have any questions, please email cphadm@uga.edu
