Promote Healthy Communities With a Health & Wellness Degree
As health care experiences rapid changes, there is a continued emphasis on disease prevention and wellness promotion. This is particularly true for growing multicultural communities and a larger population of older adults. Be part of the solution as you gain a deeper understanding of the human
body in regard to health and disease, exercise, nutrition, and stress management. The Health & Wellness major explores the multiple dimensions of wellness, preparing graduates for a number of different career paths. This is a rapidly growing field with job growth predicted to more than double by 2026.
