This concentration addresses policies and issues of health and public welfare in the U.S. and abroad.  Students develop an understanding of the social factors that create disparities in health and illness, health care delivery systems, and other social resources.  Students interested in careers in health care, health policy, public health, nursing, and social work should consider this concentration.  We strongly suggest that students in this concentration take SOC 221: Introduction to the U.S. Health Care System.
