Creating New Minors in the Medical and Legal Humanities

A three-year curricular and professional development project to create two new minors in medical humanities and legal humanities.

UC Santa Barbara proposes a 36-month initiative to create two new minors that will address issues facing the humanities in higher education by linking humanities content and skills to pre-professional education in medical and legal fields. Grant funds will be used to support the development, implementation, and evaluation of new minors in the Medical Humanities and the Legal Humanities. The project includes (1) two cohorts of faculty interested in teaching in the minors; (2) workshops to design curricular content and create new gateway courses and 14 new or revised upper-division courses; and (3) co-curricular events including a speakers’ series that attracts faculty and students to engage with health- and justice-related topics and demonstrates the affinities between the two minors. Participating faculty will create inclusive and equitable humanities curricula and incorporate strategies into their courses that speak to students’ diverse identities and backgrounds.
