While the healthcare industry as a whole continues to grow rapidly in nearly all facets, one particular area – the study and practice of human health and wellness – is among the most prominent healthcare topics and sub-fields in existence today. The idea of health and wellness most specifically encompasses preventative health care and medicine; knowledgeable and trained personnel working in this industry are charged with providing support and education to help people live healthier, thus preventing injury or illness before they start.
A Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness is among the prominent degrees available in this field, and while such a degree is available in an online format, it is a full-time program that will likely span nearly a full four-year curriculum. In some cases, however, students can use their time studying for their bachelor’s degree by entering in a concurring master’s degree program; in this case, a Master of Health Care Administration or Master of Public Health might be appropriate. During undergraduate study, students will experience such coursework as complementary and alternative medicine, health and healing, and contemporary diet and nutrition, among others. Graduates may be well suited to serve as a health educator at a hospital, educational setting, local government, outpatient care center, or through a private practice. Such positions can earn in upward of $60,000 annually (BLS.gov).
