Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

The Integrated Holistic Health and Wellness program is now offering 9 credit specialty certificates on topical areas in holistic health. This specialty certificate is meant for graduate students in health and human service degrees who would like to have special training in a particular area of holistic health but are unable or disinterested in taking the entire certificate in Integrative Holistic Health and Wellness. They are also meant for students who want to increase their understanding of the need for self-care and enhance their self-care activities.

 

Requirements for Graduate Specialty Certificates

All students interested in completing a 9 hour graduate specialty certificate must take:

  • HOL 5310 - Introduction to Holistic Health

in order to receive an orientation to and understanding of the philosophy of holistic health. Depending on the specialty area the student wishes to pursue, they will then take 6 more credits including a 3 credit required course for the area and 3 credits of selected electives.

 

Should a student wish to complete a second specialty certificate, then they will need to take an extra 3 credits of the selected electives for that specialty area in lieu of

  • HOL 5310 - Introduction to Holistic Health

 

Finally, should a student wish to complete a third specialty certificate, then they will need to take

  • HOL 6500- Seminar in Holistic Methods

instead of

  • HOL 5310 - Introduction to Holistic Health

 

If, after completing three specialty certificates, the student wishes to receive the Graduate Certificate in Holistic Health, they must complete an approved field experience and take

  • HOL 6700 - Professional Field Experience
