About

The  Behavioral Health and Wellness program at  Illinois Institute of Technology is interdisciplinary, and combines coursework in psychology, sociology, political science and nutritional science. 

Overview

You can also customize your program with an elective specialty track in either health psychology or nutrition. A capstone project will help you integrate and apply the concepts and skills you learned to a real-life situation, preparing you to make an impact your first day on the job.

A second-year medical resident can treat 80 percent of people with a heart condition by giving simple guidance: eat better, get more exercise and sleep, and stop smoking. Easy, right? The problem is, knowing what to do is much easier than knowing how to do it. Lifestyle habits are engrained from years of subtle abuse to our bodies. In that way, these aren’t issues for medicine; they’re issues for psychology.

After graduation

A lot of what’s cutting edge in health today is dealing with behavioral health – lifestyle choices. Medical doctors aren’t trained to tackle that. But IIT’s Behavioral Health and Wellness graduates are.

As a student in the Bachelor of Science in  Behavioral Health and Wellness program at  Illinois Institute of Technology, you will develop your understanding of how lifestyle choices impact health over time, and how to design individualized programs to promote healthy living, most often related to nutrition, exercise, and tobacco and alcohol use.
