Which students should consider taking the Hispanic Health and Human Service Minor?

The Hispanic Health and Human Service (HHHS) minor was designed specifically as a companion minor for students who want to work in health-related and social service fields. It is for students who are interested in working with the Spanish-speaking community and who want to make a difference in people’s lives.

The HHHS minor is an ideal field of study for students pursuing careers in:

Nursing   Health education
Physical therapy   Criminal justice
Medicine   Social Work
Dentistry   Psychology
Public health   Counseling
Exercise science   Social services

What are the goals of the HHHS minor?

The HHHS minor has three interrelated goals. They are:

  • Function competently in a professional capacity within a Hispanic/Latino
    health and human service delivery setting.
  • Recognize and respond to cultural characteristics that affect health and human
    service delivery in the Hispanic/Latino community.
  • Demonstrate ability to communicate effectively using Spanish terminology in
    reading, writing and speaking.

 "The faculty helped me find an internship in a community organization where I can use  my Spanish and cultural skills."                                                                                                                                                        - student
