Declare a Public Health Major or Minor

Declaring the Public Health major or minor is easy. Just email the School of Public Health Instructor/Coordinator Emma Draluck at kdraluck@memphis.edu. We'll contact you to discuss the program and get your permission to file the paperwork. Please put NEW MAJOR or NEW MINOR in the subject line and be sure to include your full name and student ID number (U00012345).

To be eligible for the Public Health major, students must successfully complete their general education required courses and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students are advised to declare the Public Health major no later than the end of their sophomore year to ensure completion of the major by their anticipated graduation date. Only courses with a grade of “C” or better may be counted toward the major.

There are no prerequisites to declare a major or minor in Public Health, and most students find that all of their previous courses transfer without loss of credit. The minor requires 18 credit hours.
