  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2019
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 120
  • Required credits within the major: 64 to 82
  • Degree: Bachelor of Science
The health and wellbeing sciences major is a broadly interdisciplinary, individualized bachelor of science degree. The lower division preparatory requirements and the upper division core curriculum include the foundational biological, physical, and social sciences relevant to health and wellness in the 21st century. Working closely with an adviser, students personalize their degree plan to meet their individual interests and professional goals. Through both core requirements and customized course selections, students can complete prerequisites for graduate and professional school programs or prepare for direct entry into a health and wellbeing related field. Students write a proposal paper documenting their course choices and relevant goals and background experiences that support those choices.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Students must complete 50 credits before admission to the program.
Freshman and transfer students are usually admitted to pre-major status before admission to this major.
A GPA above 2.0 is preferred for the following:
  • 2.50 already admitted to the degree-granting college
  • 2.50 transferring from another University of Minnesota college
  • 2.50 transferring from outside the University
Students are considered for admission based on a review of their application. The review includes factors such as GPA, grade trends, performance in coursework relevant to proposed areas of study, and demonstrated ability to meet curricular and developmental expectations. Students must have attended a program information session and an initial degree planning appointment with an adviser. Students with 30-49 transferable credits, GPA of 2.5, and strong interest in the major may be admitted to premajor status.

Grading Basis: A-F only
Typically offered: Every Fall, Spring & Summer
The course introduces students to applied psychology as a discipline and reviews fundamental principles of psychology through the lenses of applied and professional areas that are the foci of CEHD majors.

Thus, these psychological principles are considered theoretically, empirically, and through examples for application, with lab discussions and projects emphasizing education, business, health and wellness. The course serves as a foundation for future coursework in education, health sciences, and psychology, and is consistent with the APA’s public education effort to demonstrate how the science and application of psychology benefits society and improves lives.

Nonprofits and health care entities will continue to be challenged by limited resources and increased needs in communities they serve. This reality also results in an increased need for these groups to find additional financial support. This course will provide an understanding of ways to find, research, and write proposals for grants offered by government and private entities. As a writing intensive course, it will spend significant time focusing on the writing process. Writing is crucial to the field because the only way for a nonprofit to be awarded a grant is by submitting a written proposal. The strength of the proposal has a significant impact on the money that an organization will receive. Students will become familiar with various sections of the proposal by drafting, editing, and seeking feedback, and by revising a needs assessment, goal statement, budget justification, and statement of organizational purpose. By learning how to write well in the field, students will increase their chances of being employed by a nonprofit and securing funding for their organization.
