The Department of Human Centered Design offers a variety of minors to interested students.

ELIGIBILITY

To be considered for the Minor in D+EA, students must not be a D+EA major.

REQUIREMENTS

Earning a D+EA minor requires a minimum of 15 credits within D+EA, including three required core courses (DEA1101, DEA1110 or DEA1200, and DEA1500) and two upper level DEA thematic courses. See Application to Graduate with a Minor in D+EA for detailed course requirements and a list of eligible electives. Only D+EA courses may be used to satisfy the requirements of the minor. Courses must be completed as letter grade with a grade of B- or better. Courses offered only as S/U are accepted but must not exceed a total of 3 credits toward the credit requirement for the minor.

GETTING STARTED

Start by taking the 3 core courses required for the D+EA Minor. Submit the Intention to Minor in D+EA form after successfully completing the 3 core courses requirement. To receive consideration or priority in D+EA course enrollment, a completed Intention to Minor in D+EA form must have been submitted prior to the semester in which enrollment is desired. Formally declaring intent to minor in D+EA does not guarantee enrollment in D+EA courses. The minor is self-guided. Some courses require prerequisites so careful planning by the student is warranted.

TRANSFER CREDITS

Course credits from institutions other than Cornell or from academic units at Cornell other than D+EA cannot be counted towards the minor in Design + Environmental Analysis.

COMPLETING THE MINOR IN D+EA

During the semester in which the student plans to graduate, s/he must submit a completed Application to Graduate with a Minor in D+EA to DEA's Academic Programs Coordinator (deaundergrad@cornell.edu).

After verification by D+EA that all requirements for the minor have been completed, the student’s college registrar will be notified and the final transcript will indicate that a Minor in D+EA was earned.

The Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures and the Department of Design + Environmental Analysis offers a minor in Healthy Futures open to all undergraduate students. Most of today’s healthcare spending is on clinical approaches for diagnosing and treating diseases. However, behavioral, social and environmental factors play a large role in determining overall health. Health and wellness professionals of the future must engage in an interdisciplinary effort to successfully compete and contribute to positive change. This minor provides a high caliber, transdisciplinary education in the fields of health, hospitality, and design. This innovative trans-disciplinary focus — the first of its kind — has the potential to change industry practices and professional attitudes by breaking down the silos that often undermine creative solutions. This minor may be of particular interest to students enrolled in health, wellness, policy, and hospitality related majors, or students interested in applying their education to problem-solving in the population health and wellness space.

ELIGIBILITY

Open to all undergraduate students, including D+EA majors.

REQUIREMENTS

Earning the minor in Healthy Futures requires a minimum of 17 credits. The minor consists of students taking “DEA/HADM 3055 - Health, Hospitality & Design Industry Seminar” (1 credit-hour), 9-credit hours of specific required courses distributed across the three disciplines of design, healthcare administration, and hospitality, 6-credit hour of elective courses, and participating in an internship (1 credit-hour DEA 4020 Supervised Fieldwork). See Application to Graduate with a Minor in Healthy Futures for detailed course requirements and a list of eligible electives. Courses must be completed as letter grade with a grade of B- or better.

GETTING STARTED

Completing the Hospitality, Health, and Design Industry Seminar (DEA/HADM 3055) is required to declare Intent to minor in Healthy Futures. Submit the Intention to Minor in Healthy Futures form. Students are responsible for planning their minor program of study in conjunction with the advisor in their major. Due to the imperative that students take core courses outside their discipline and the fact that students come from multiple departments, the requirements change across majors. Thus, careful planning by the student is warranted.

TRANSFER CREDITS

Course credits from institutions other than Cornell cannot be counted towards the minor in Healthy Futures.

COMPLETING THE MINOR IN HEALTHY FUTURES

During the semester in which the student plans to graduate, s/he must submit a completed Application to Graduate with a Minor in Healthy Futures. The completed form should be emailed to hf-minor@cornell.edu. After verification by D+EA that all requirements for the minor have been completed, the student’s college registrar will be notified and the final transcript will indicate that a Minor in Healthy Futures was earned.
