What is the minor in Health and Wellness?
Through courses -- taught at the Living Learning Center and campus wide – and informal interactions with faculty and other students, the Health and Wellness minor (department code LHW) will provide you with a foundation in the concepts of healthy living and help you select future studies/careers in the health professions.
In addition to introducing you to exciting health care careers, LHW courses provide a small class learning environment designed to promote skills in group dynamics, active problem solving and independent learning.
