Major and Career Exploration: Health and Wellness

One way to learn more about particular majors and related career paths is to become familiar with the professional organizations in those fields of study. For example, the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) is a nonprofit  association that represents a diverse membership of health education professionals and students. SOPHE members work in schools, universities, health care facilities, worksites, and government agencies. Their primary purpose is to raise awareness about the connection between health and the surrounding environment.If you are interested in learning about how to prevent disease, prolong life, and improve people’s mental and physical well-being, consider a major in Health Behavior Science (HBS). HBS majors gain the knowledge and skills to promote healthy lifestyles through conducting needs assessments, identifying health priorities, creating evidence-based health programs, and evaluating the impacts and outcomes of health promotion activities. Graduates of this program may find employment as a wellness coordinator, someone who manages fitness programs and wellness services in a variety of settings, including corporate gyms, non-profit recreational facilities, and university health centers.

 

 

In the Know: The Advising Relationship

Students are equal partners in the advising process. As an advisee, you are ultimately responsible for your academic and career decisions. Academic advisors are best able to assist you when you:

  • devote time and energy to reflecting on and clarifying your values, abilities, interests, and goals;
  • maintain contact with your advisor at relevant times during the semester (e.g. registration, midterm);
  • adequately prepare for advising sessions by reviewing the university catalog and course offerings; and
  • write down your questions to make sure you don’t forget to cover something important at your meeting.

 

Mark Your Calendar

September 12 is the last day to make changes to your schedule without a fee. If you are having difficulty in a class or have questions about alternative grading options such as withdraw, audit, and pass/fail, check with an advisor before making changes in UDSIS. Advisors are available from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm to see students on a first-come, first-served basis at the Center for Academic Success at 148-150 South College Avenue.
