Why Students Love the Medicine, Science, and the Humanities Major

“The major has exposed me to material and coursework that I find to be immeasurably important as someone who wants to be a physician in the future. Medicine truly is about more than chemistry and biology: it involves people. This major enabled me to explore facets of health care that are too often overlooked, and I believe I will be a better doctor because of it.”

“Through MSH I have discovered just how intertwined the humanities and health are. With a strong passion for both the sciences and Spanish, I’ve learned through MSH how to utilize both in a cohesive way, allowing me to approach medicine and health through a whole new lens. MSH’s core values are unmatched when it comes to emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary studies.”

“MSH provides a unique, humanistic approach to medicine that pre-medical students cannot gain solely from their science courses. It allows students to understand both how medicine impacts—and is impacted by—culture and societal norms.”

“MSH reveals the deep-rooted flaws of our current health system while encouraging me to become an integral part of the solution. I cannot imagine going into any health profession without the strong interdisciplinary foundations and humanistic insight that MSH provides.”
