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.

A psychology major with a minor in community health and wellness and an Honors student, Jessica Lorento '16 was looking for an academic experience in which she could have one-on-one relationships with her professors. "When I first got to Curry I met the psychology professors and right away they were super friendly and welcomed me in; that's a huge reason why I came."
Congratulations to members of the Curry education and health faculty for their on-going professional accomplishments!
