Wellness Minor Program Overview

The Wellness Minor exists to

1) broaden the knowledge, skills, and abilities of those interested in the healthcare and allied healthcare industries and

2) to engage students in the process of becoming stewards of their personal health and wellness and stewards of global population health and wellness.

Wellness, defined as a multi-dimensional sense of being, includes the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, emotional, financial and intellectual domains. A minor in wellness provides a concentration of study that prepares individuals to develop or to serve on work site wellness teams. Students with an additional bachelor's degree in athletic training or exercise science may also find employment as a wellness program coordinator or wellness director.

Even as one of the most affordable private universities in the nation, the University of Mary does offer a variety of scholarships. In fact, 99% of main campus undergraduate students receive some form of scholarship! 

Some scholarships are available for specific academic programs, such as nursing, while other scholarships are available for certain student populations, such as military and veteran students

We strongly encourage you to contact your personal admissions representative to discover all of the options that might be available to you. In many cases, a program specific scholarship is just one component of a complete financial aid package. 

Our admissions professionals will work together with our Office of Financial Assistance to ensure that you get the best financial aid package possible to finance your education.
