The Health and Wellness Minor educates students on the physiological, environmental, and psychosocial components that impact personal health and well-being. The minor promotes an evidence-based mindset and the acquisition of practical life skills that could empower students to reflect on their own well-being and evaluate their health-related behaviors. The Science and Mathematics Department hosts the core classes of personal wellness, nutrition, and human anatomy to provide students a solid foundation in the physiological component of health. In this interdisciplinary minor, students also choose from a selection of environmental science courses as well as courses in psychology and sociology.
