Undergraduate Holistic Health Studies

Minor or Undergraduate Certificate:

The holistic health minor and certificate program were developed as a response to the changing health perspective in Western culture. The courses are designed to provide a profile of the holistic paradigm from philosophical, historical and methodological viewpoints. These concepts readily support other disciplines such as education, psychology, social work, gerontology, religion, business and biology. Students must complete a minimum of 18 credits in holistic health and 1 credit of PE300 Tai Chi or PE310 Healing Qi (Chi) Gong.
