Designed with an understanding that today’s organizations need qualified professionals to lead effective wellness programs, the online UW Health and Wellness bachelor’s and master’s degree programs provide the skills you need to design, develop, implement, promote, and manage health and wellness initiatives that effect lasting change.
UW Health and Wellness programs are a smart choice for busy adults who want to advance their careers—or start a whole new career—but don’t have time for on-campus courses.
Online Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees
UW Health and Wellness Management bachelor’s and master’s programs are taught by diverse and distinguished faculty from across the University of Wisconsin System.
Because our programs are entirely online, you can study and do homework whenever you like, wherever you have an Internet connection. Courses have no set meeting times, and you never need to come to campus.
At the same time, you will have ready access to advisers and faculty by phone and email, and you may take advantage of on-campus resources such as career assistance and libraries.
