Medical Humanities

The Medical Humanities program at Baylor is one of a few programs of its kind across the country and is designed to provide a holistic and enriching education for students interested in working in the medical or healthcare field. The Medical Humanities is an interdisciplinary study of humanities, social science and the arts, and how they relate to medical education and practice. Coursework is drawn from a variety of departments including science, history, religion, philosophy, psychology and sociology. Available courses include:

  • History of Medicine
  • Behavioral Medicine
  • Bioethics
  • Spirituality and Healthcare
  • International Health

A major in Medical Humanities is intended primarily for undergraduate students entering the field of healthcare and is a popular major for students in the premedicine and pre-law tracks. Graduates have worked in public health, hospitals, clinics, and counseling centers among other things.

Baylor University offers several Living-Learning Centers, which are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together in living and learning environments. Baylor offers a Science and Health Living-Learning Center where students with common interest in pursuing a career in medicine and the sciences will be able to collaborate with each other as well as science faculty and medical researchers.
