This unique, 12-credit graduate certificate program is entirely online and can help advance your career in integrative health and wellness.
Participants in the Integrative Health and Wellness program will learn the fundamental concepts, philosophies, and methods of integrative health, and will compare these to those of conventional medicine. They will analyze the empirical research on the use, benefits, and effects of integrative approaches to healing. Notably, beyond studying the research, students will have the opportunity to experience and practice integrative mind-body interventions and the key skills of health coaching. This experiential learning will contribute to both professional and personal development. Finally, participants will learn how to apply their knowledge of integrative health and wellness to assessment and treatment planning. Participants will be able to use their skills in a diverse number of fields, including medicine, nursing, counseling, coaching, teaching, massage therapy, acupuncture, personal fitness, rehabilitation, yoga instruction, physical therapy, and many more.
