What is the minor in Health and Wellness?

Through courses -- taught at the Living Learning Center and campus wide – and informal interactions with faculty and other students, the Health and Wellness minor (department code LHW) will provide you with a foundation in the concepts of healthy living and help you select future studies/careers in the health professions.

In addition to introducing you to exciting health care careers, LHW courses provide a small class learning environment designed to promote skills in group dynamics, active problem solving and independent learning. These skills and a strong interest in health and wellness may identify you as a strong candidate for a health care profession.
