Wellness Coaching Minor

Minor in wellness coaching

Stop waiting on the sideline; make sure you have the training and skills for a successful career in health and wellness coaching.

In this minor, you'll learn the principles of coaching, lifestyle wellness, and physical activity as well as how to teach healthy behaviors and habits. Wellness coaches may work with clients in a variety of areas, including behavior change, stress management, relaxation techniques, time management, smoking cessation, weight loss, or exercise programming.

As a wellness coach, you’ll come to rely on the multidisciplinary training you receive. It'll play a role in determining a clients’ readiness to change, help them determine short- and long- term goals related to wellness, and guide clients to achieve their goals.
