The curriculum of the MS Health and Wellness Management focuses broadly on preparing professionals to improve and support health and wellness in the U.S. through implementation of evidence-based strategies for behavior change and mobilization of solutions for preventing chronic disease.
The program consists of 18 core credits which incorporate both wellness leadership and management content necessary to sit for both certification exams. The remaining 12 elective credits are self-selected by the student based on their specific areas of interest. Electives can be applied to graduate certificates if desired (Leadership and Management, or Telehealth as examples). Upon completion of all coursework, students will be required to sit for and pass a qualifying examination prior to graduation.
Graduates will be prepared to pursue the Certified Wellness Practitioner (CWP) credential through the National Wellness Institute (NWI) and the National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) credential once full program-approval is granted.
