Integrative Medicine and the Humanities Experiential Minor

2024-25 catalog

HEIDI STORL, Professor (Philosophy)
B.A. Capital University; Ph.D., The Ohio State University

This interdisciplinary, experiential minor is open to all Augustana students with an interest in any aspect of modern healthcare. The minor explores humanities-based skills that encourage value clarification and the development of moral courage. As a result of these skills, students in the minor will better understand and develop compassionate forms of care in health-related fields.

The minor requires successful completion of core courses and category-specific courses. For descriptions of category-specific courses, please see the departmental pages in which these courses are housed.

20 credits, including the following:
• Core courses: MEDH-200; MEDH-300; MEDH-400: Health Humanities Capstone; MEDH-INTR
• Category-specific courses: one course required from each of three categories


Grade Point Average Notation: All courses listed in the catalog as required courses for any major and/or minor, including those courses outside of the department or with a different subject coding, are considered part of the major and will count in the grade point average.
