Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the Health and Society major, we believe that students’ experiences in the major are enriched when they engage with other students with diverse ranges of life experiences, points of view, and career objectives. We seek cohorts that consist of excellent, engaged, and dedicated students who collectively have broad experiences and perspectives. These various factors are considered during the admissions process.

The application deadline is September 15 and February 15 each year. If you are unsuccessful in gaining admission to the Health and Society major on the first attempt, you may apply a second time. Since you may apply for admission only twice, you are strongly encouraged to thoroughly review the application requirements and application considerations and to apply when you believe you are a strong candidate.

Application Requirements:

  • Statement of Interest - up to two pages single-spaced.
  • Interest Form – detailing coursework completed.
  • Degree Progress Report –not more than 30-days old.
  • Successful completion of your first year.
  • If you would like to be added to our email list for upcoming events and activities related to the Health and Society major, please complete the Interest Form and submit to Tiffany Powell in the department office.
