The Health Humanities minor critically analyzes historical and contemporary connections among health, medicine, and society. The minor deepens understandings of disease and wellness, pain and suffering, personhood, the nature of death and dying, embodied experience, and the limits of technological knowledge. Studying literature, history, philosophy, rhetoric, the arts, and related social science fields, HEHM students explore the human dimensions of medical practice and how they interact with lived experience, revealing the ethical, cultural, and social contexts of health and medicine.
