A minor in Holistic Health Care consists of an 18 credit hour course of study designed to meet the needs of students interested in learning about the theory and practice of holistic health. Through a required sequence of courses students explore holistic concepts related to their individual health, including the interconnectedness of the mind, body and spirit. Integral to this course of study is also cultivating an understanding of the way in which the expression of holistic principles through everyday choices and lifestyle affect the broader community. 

The minor meets the needs of two student populations: 1) Students majoring in a health care field who wish to incorporate the principles and practices of holistic health into their practice to compliment their skills in becoming effective professionals in the current health care system; and 2) students majoring in a non-health related profession interested in applying holistic theory to their field of study.
