​Focusing on one of the fastest growing areas of healthcare, the mind-body medicine curriculum encompasses areas such as integrative healthcare, mind-body science, practice, research, and ethics. Students may choose to add a specialization in applied psychophysiology, integrative and functional nutrition, integrative mental health, integrative wellness coaching, and mindful leadership in healthcare. The generalist degree or no specialization option offers the most flexible sequence for individuals pursuing multiple certifications such as integrative wellness coaching, integrative and functional nutrition, biofeedback, and clinical hypnosis. ​

Students may:

  • Prepare for a new career in mind-body medicine and integrative health
  • Learn organizational and leadership skills to transform healthcare organizations for the new health care
  • Research the effectiveness of complementary healthcare practices like meditation, biofeedback, or hypnosis.
  • Study health coaching, therapeutic movement, spiritual practices, and other self-healing modalities in an evidence-based approach
  • Use mind-body approaches to wellness to improve the quality of life
  • Explore the connection between our physical, emotional, social, and spiritual lives
