Our award-winning program is the first in the nation to prepare master's level leaders in the expanding fields of integrative health and wellness coaching. 

Integrative health is an individualized, client-centered approach to wellness, combining a whole person model with evidence-based strategies and practices.  Students learn how to assist others in setting and achieving health goals, and in changing lifestyle behaviors, by employing integrative tools such as meditation, breath work, yoga, guided imagery, mind-body techniques, whole foods nutrition, exercise and movement, stress management, and personal health planning. Students learn how to help others reduce disease risk by changing lifestyle behaviors.

Students also learn to be social advocates for social change, since environmental and social factors are determinants of health.

The application deadline for Fall 2016 admission is August 1, 2016 for U.S. students; for international students, the deadline is June 1, 2016.
