— Provide care for the mind, body and spirit

Health care is not “one size fits all.”  Every patient has their own unique needs and background that must be addressed to ensure proper treatment.  That’s why the Integrative Health degree prepares graduates to treat each patient holistically, focusing not just on their body, but their mind and spirit as well.  By engaging patients as individuals and drawing treatments from traditional, conventional and complementary medicines, graduates are well positioned to address health care challenges for diverse populations.

Key program areas of emphasis
  • Understand the ethics, legalities and standards of practice of integrative health.
  • Critical thinking about different therapies, modalities and practitioners.
  • Develop holistic approach to wellness that focuses on the mind, body and spirit.

This emerging field, focused on integrative and holistic health, provides you with a broader perspective on treatment using approaches from allopathic and complementary medicine to elicit the best health outcomes.

The BS program in integrative health provides students with a foundation in integrative health, a holistic approach to wellness that focuses on the mind, body and spirit.

Through innovative and interprofessional approaches to serving and supporting diverse populations, students learn to understand and differentiate the ethics, legalities and standards of practice of integrative health and to think critically about different therapies, modalities and practitioners. Coursework and experiences include an emphasis on research and evidence-based practices and gaining an understanding of the historical and cultural foundations of the integrative health field.

This degree program has the same prerequisites as the nursing major; therefore, students may transition seamlessly to this program and obtain a bachelor's degree in a health-related field.
