The Health Promotion and Wellness major is unique in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding schools in offering students a comprehensive liberal arts-based education focused on the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of health and health care.

Overview

The Health Promotion and Wellness major 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 major builds upon theoretical knowledge, experiential components, and research, all of which culminate in the completion of a capstone project.
