Catalog Options for Graduation Requirements

The Catalog is published annually and constitutes the official document of the University, although the information therein is subject to change at any time by official action of the University of Michigan-Flint. In the event such an action is taken, students affected will be advised by their units of the options available to them to complete their degrees. Every reasonable effort will be made to permit students to complete these programs or similar programs. Changes made to program and degree requirements, including general education requirements become effective the fall semester following approval and apply to all students admitted to the University that term and thereafter.

Students must satisfy degree requirements in effect at the time of their admission to the University of Michigan-Flint. Students who select a major or minor offered in a catalog subsequent to their original admission at the University of Michigan-Flint must follow the catalog in effect at the time the new major or minor is offered. Students may choose to use newer catalogs, but not older catalogs. Students who do not attend for one calendar year, must be readmitted to the university through the Admissions Office and must satisfy degree and program requirements in effect at the time of their readmission.

Health communications are everywhere. Have you ever heard a public service announcement on the radio about a health issue? Seen a billboard advertising the services of a local hospital? Followed a health organization on social media? How would you like to be part of the team that plans and executes health communications such as these?

Like any organization, healthcare organizations—such as major health systems, health departments, and non-profit health organizations—need to communicate effectively with the public. Creative, well-informed communications professionals are in demand to help healthcare organizations promote their services, relate with their public, and educate communities about important health issues.

UM-Flint’s new minor in health communication aims to prepare graduates for positions like these by equipping them with necessary background knowledge and practical skills. Communication is a vital part of any job, particularly in the healthcare field, making the health communication minor a perfect fit for students in majors like public health, health education, health care administration, social work, psychology, and business.
