Chronic Illness Minor

Christina Lam, Coordinator
Phone: (540) 568-7616

The cross disciplinary minor in chronic illness prepares students from any major to understand and respond to the impacts of chronic illness on the individual, family, health care system and society. Knowledge and strategies to address the prevention and the management of chronic illness across its trajectory will enhance the skills and abilities of students who plan to practice in any profession. The minor is open to all undergraduate students at JMU and requires a minimum of 18 credits with no more than six credits in the student’s major counting toward the minor.

Deadlines for submission of the Application to Declare a Chronic Illness Minor are due to the Chronic Illness Minor Coordinator by:  

  • The last day of September for fall registration for the spring term.
  • The last day of February for spring registration for the fall term.
