Humanities in Medicine is an interdisciplinary program designed to support students' learning about the social and cultural contexts of health, illness and medical care.
The Program has two curricular options:
- the Scholars’ Program
- the minor
The Program began in 1996 with the support of a gift from Linda and Charles Wilson. The Wilson Fund provides scholarships for pre-medicine students who major in a humanities or social sciences field (The Scholars' Program) and support for visiting speakers and special events.
The interdisciplinary minor began in 2008, and has grown in popularity each year, attracting students pursuing a wide variety of majors.
With this program, UNL joins the handful of colleges and universities who offer undergraduates an organized opportunity to take courses in diverse fields with the goal of developing a broad understanding of the human side of health care.
