Community Health and Wellness

The community health and wellness minor is open to all undergraduates. The community health and wellness minor provides students an opportunity to combine the study of health with a major in any discipline.

The Community Health and Wellness minor is a program with foundations in the biological, psychological, social, and behavioral sciences. Our goal is to prepare students who are interested in entering in the growing health industry for careers working with individuals, hospitals, communities, worksites, wellness centers, or in the local, state, or federal government.
