About the Health Professions Undergraduate Minor Program

An interdisciplinary minor in health professions is for students who are planning to apply to post-graduate health profession programs with very specific prerequisite requirements. The minor will meet the needs of pre-professional health careers students who may require courses outside their major. All students who are enrolled in the health professions minor will be required to complete ZOOL 2403  (Anatomy). The requirements for the minor are as follows:

  • A minimum of 18 hours of approved classes.
  • A minimum 2.0 GPA to declare the health professions minor.
  • No more than three classes from any department or program may count toward the minor. Classes with a corresponding lab (e.g., CHEM 1305 /CHEM 1105 ) will count as one class for this requirement.
  • A minimum of 6 hours at the junior or senior level taken at Texas Tech.
  • Substitutions to the existing course list (see below) may be made with prior approval of the advisor if a course is shown to be a prerequisite for a specific health professions program.
  • Courses used to fulfill requirements for the student’s major may not be applied toward fulfillment of the health professions minor (does not include adjunct requirements).
