Courses required for the minor are the following:

  • Organic Chemistry I with lab
  • Statistics for the Social Sciences
  • Anatomy and Physiology

At least half of the required courses for the Health Sciences minor must be taken at Manhattanville. Courses required by the student's major (e.g., Biology, Biochemistry, or Chemistry) or another minor may not be used to satisfy requirements for a minor in Health Sciences. All courses for the minor must be completed with a minimum grade of C-

The courses listed above provide a minimal program of preparation for admission to graduate programs. Additional courses directly related to the chosen profession may also be needed for admission. Students should check the entrance requirements of the professional schools to which they intend to apply.

Please see Pre-Professional Health Programs and Partnerships with Other Institutions for opportunities for students interested in the health sciences.

Members of the Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee (PHPAC) may be contacted with any questions.
