Personal Health (Minor)

Home / Degree Programs / Personal Health

The personal health minor allows students with academic interests that lie outside the realm of medical and health sciences to explore and learn the latest information related to healthy lifestyles, including the attainment and retention of a high quality of personal health. Students gain the knowledge and skills necessary to optimize their personal health and assume increased responsibility to move towards improved overall wellness. The program reflects the transdisciplinary nature of personal health by including courses from the nutrition, exercise and wellness, health sciences and health promotion areas.

Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added.
