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.
Exploratory Health Professions (EHP) Program
The Exploratory Health Professions (EHP) Program at Curry College is designed to help students interested in health services fields identify and pursue a major that will lead to internships and employment in the health care industry following graduation. Students selected for this program will take a common set of courses their first year and have the opportunity to participate in workshops and events throughout the year that assist with identifying strengths and interests and expose them to options in health related professions. At the end of the first year, EHP students will have the opportunity to declare their major and plan their pathway to graduation.
