Add a minor or certificate to your degree plan to learn more about a subject and to make yourself stand out from the crowd. Many minors only require 15 credit hours, or about five classes, while certificates typically require a few more. (Some students find that they can work on their minor or certificate classes during the summer sessions or during the elective hours already built into their degree plans.) Minors and certificates are also an excellent way to start thinking about parallel planning if you are applying to a competitive program.
A list of minors and certificates that are particularly relevant to students wanting to work in the health care world is below. If you don't see anything that strikes your fancy, though, you can see the complete list of minors and certificates that IUPUI has to offer.
