Overview

The Bachelor in Health Promotion and Wellness program offered by Cedar Crest College is an interdisciplinary, integrative program of study grounded in the liberal arts that focuses on the biological, psychosocial and spirituality aspects of health and health care. It teaches students both how to live healthier lives and how to teach others to do the same, with the goal of ultimately contributing to a culture of wellness. 

The major is a methodical application of the biopsychosocial model of medicine (and health care) to its fullest. The Health Promotion and Wellness program builds upon theoretical knowledge, experiential components, and research, all of which culminate in the completion of a capstone project. 

Health Promotion and Wellness Outcomes Upon successful completion of the Health Promotion and Wellness major, students will be able to:

  • Identify the anatomical structures and describe the physiological functions of the systems of the human body with a focus on the central and peripheral nervous systems, and how dysregulation in certain brain structures can contribute to maladaptive behavior.
  • Explain how learning, conditioning, and social influences are related to adaptive and maladaptive human behaviors.
  • Describe the role of psychological and psychophysiological interventions in promoting health-seeking behaviors.
