Bringing together assessment, planning and implementation of health programs through a Health Education Minor.

A health education minor is an interdisciplinary minor offered to any student at South Dakota State University. The minor may be of particular interest for those individuals seeking a health-related profession to gain additional content in assessment, planning, and implementation of health education programs. The minor can be obtained by completing a required core and set of courses offered across several disciplines.

Undecided or still deciding on a major and future career?

If you are uncertain about your major and have questions about career planning, you are not alone. Choosing a major or career can be a very difficult decision. The exploratory studies program may be a good fit if you are unsure of your major and career focus. Entering the university in the exploratory studies program will help you gain confidence and valuable insights on majors and minors available at SDSU and future career choices. 

In addition, FOCUS 2 Career, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you reflect on your values, interests, personality traits and skills to provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 Career by using their student email and password. After completing FOCUS 2 Career, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
