As a supplement to a non-healthcare-major field of study, a minor in Health Promotion and Wellness may lead to a greater range of career opportunities. With this minor, you can gain the knowledge and skills to be an advocate for your own health as well as to encourage others to live healthier, more balanced, and more meaningful lives. Coursework provides a holistic view of health and is rooted in multiple dimensions of health, including physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, and environmental. Note: This minor is open to all bachelor’s degree students except those enrolled in the BS in Health Studies, BS in Healthcare Management, or BS in Public Health programs.
