Wellness and Health Promotion Minor

Return to Programs Return to: Programs

A minor in Wellness and Health Promotion is available to students majoring in other programs such as anthropology, integrative studies, health sciences, human resource development, psychology or sociology. The Code of Ethics below also applies to the minor.  WHP students are expected to epitomize a complete wellness lifestyle. Therefore, the WHP minor is not recommended for individuals who cannot fulfill the ethical expectations to be a good role model in the health promotion field.


 A five-semester sequence of prerequisite courses is applied to the minor.  However, high-achieving students with GPAs above 3.0 and 3.5 may follow accelerated semester sequence options. For details see the WHP website.


Code of ethics

Since ethical conduct is critical to a health profession, students are required to abide by the Code of Conduct established by the American College of Sports medicine.  Violations will be reviewed by the faculty and could result in dismissal from the program.  Students are expected to maintain healthy lifestyle choices and fulfill the critical expectation to be a good role model in the health promotion field.
