The wellness studies minor provides a holistic approach to the study of the human wellness experience. Offering interdisciplinary enrollment, this minor includes foundational wellness courses, as well as a range of interdisciplinary electives that embrace evidence-based science and education vis-à-vis selected domains of wellness. A cross-cultural, life span approach to individual and population wellness and well-being is offered as an experiential learning initiative.
As Northeastern University guides students in the ways of self-managing (life-long learning), an understanding of the nature and practices of wellness may inform deliberative decision-making processes that lead to the attainment of wellness-informed lifestyle choices. Over time, these choices may inform the design and crafting of a life well lived.
