“It’s really true that college is what you make it. The more involved you are and the more you do on campus, the better your experience will be. Take the initiative and say hello. There’s a lot to do and great stuff happening at Curry, so make the most of your time on campus.”

Community Health and Wellness
If you want to become a health educator in the area of community, government, health care or fitness, then the community health and wellness major is designed for you. The community health and wellness major can also prepare you for graduate programs and also meets the coursework criteria for eligibility to become a Certified Health Education Specialist.
Community Health and Wellness as a MAJOR
The community health and wellness program includes 15 credits of health courses and 15 credits of electives, which are designed, through advisement, to provide the student with the competencies desirable for future employment.
For community health and wellness majors, you must also complete 15 credits in the Community Health Concentration.
Community Health and Wellness as a MINOR
Curry also offers a community health and wellness minor which is open to all undergraduates. The community health and wellness minor provides you an opportunity to combine the study of health with a major in any discipline. The multidisciplinary program approach will prepare you for health-related careers in communication and with community-based organizations, such as business, industry, hospitals, and agencies that deal with health problems, health promotion or health services.
Get Started Today!
Visit campus and explore Curry's community health and wellness program in person. You also may request information to learn more about the major, minor or concentration of your choice. When you're ready to apply to Curry, we'll help you get started.

In the fall of 2013, community health and wellness majors had the opportunity to attend the 141st annual American Public Health Association (APHA) Meeting & Exposition in Boston. Accompanied by Professors Katherine Morrison and Marcia Richards, the students were exposed to a variety of interactions with some of the over 12,000 public health professionals in attendance.
Congratulations to members of the Curry education and health faculty for their on-going professional accomplishments!
