Health Communication Minor

CHC offers a minor to any UT student who would like to further their studies in health communication. Students completing the minor program will understand how health communication professionals think and be more prepared for careers in population health, medicine, clinic management, and communication agencies, among others. To complete the minor, students will take a course introducing them to the field of health communication, courses in interpersonal, organizational, and mass communication, as well as two additional courses of the students choosing related to health communication.

Graduate Portfolio

CHC offers a portfolio option to UT graduate students. The portfolio is comprised of four graduate-level courses and allows students to develop an in-depth knowledge of the field of health communication including communication theory, research methods, and applications. These courses are taught by faculty in six departments across four schools, including the Moody College of Communication, and the Colleges of Education, Natural Sciences, and Nursing. Students who enroll in the CHC portfolio will be encouraged to participate in the CHC’s scholarly community by way of attendance at various conferences, seminars, guest lectures, and community outreach events.
