Boston University - Boston, MA

  • Minor

Medical anthropology is a subfield of anthropology that explores how society, culture, and biology influence global health and well-being, the experience and distribution of illness, the prevention and treatment of sickness, healing processes, and the utilization of pluralistic medical systems. A minor in medical anthropology develops knowledge and skills that are important for thinking critically about contested definitions of health and health care. Students pursuing the minor combine broad introductory coursework with specialized electives in the College of Arts & Sciences Department of Anthropology and in the Program in Medical Anthropology and Cross-Cultural Practice at the Boston University School of Medicine.
