The Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management is an interdisciplinary program that helps students gain a broad understanding of the ways in which health care systems, health care costs, employee wellness programs and values of health/wellness management programs impact the work environment. Increasing healthcare costs and a growing number of healthcare coverage options will spur demand for professionals to develop strategically integrated wellness programs. In light of these trends, a few areas graduates of the Health and Wellness Management program will be able to help are:
- Integrate a wide array of programs to enhance employee safety and wellness and improve work-life balance
- Influence corporate/community productivity
- Reduce health care costs
- Engage management and leadership at multiple levels
