There is a renewed focus on preventative healthcare, fitness, and healthy living habits because the healthier someone is, the less money they’ll spend on healthcare. This idea has opened numerous career options and opportunities. Our Health and Wellness degree will prepare you to work in a variety of healthcare fields like:

  • Corporations or institutions
  • Healthcare providers
  • Community/social services agencies
  • Creating your own business as a provider or consultant

You’ll learn that the value of good health is much more than the absence of disease.

Faculty chair Dr. Kent De Spain offers his view of the value of the Health and Wellness bachelor’s degree:
