Master techniques that will improve organizational culture to support healthy lifestyle choices and improve both employee well-being and work-life balance
Designed for working adults with real-world experience, the online UW Master of Science in Health and Wellness Management will strengthen and expand your knowledge of corporate wellness and health promotion issues, preparing you for high-level leadership positions at your current organization or at top companies around the world.
12 Courses. 36 Credits. Online.
Through a core curriculum plus a capstone experience, this graduate program covers topics including program budgeting, legal and policy issues, strategic planning, change management, systems thinking, marketing, and communication.
The online learning format offers working students a flexible, convenient way to pursue their degree. Because the coursework in the program is 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 success coaches and faculty by phone and email, and you may take advantage of on-campus resources such as career assistance and libraries.
You’ll earn your degree from the University of Wisconsin, one of the largest and most widely respected public higher education systems in the country. And the multi-campus partnership means you’ll learn from expert faculty from across the UW System with strong connections to the industry.
You may be eligible for admission if you have:
- a bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally or nationally accredited university and a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. Students with a GPA less than 3.0 may be considered for provisional admission and should contact an enrollment adviser for more information.
- prerequisite coursework in personal health, anatomy and physiology or human biology, intro to psychology, and elementary statistics. UW campus equivalents or other college/university equivalents may be substituted.
Aptitude tests, such as the GRE, are not required for admission.

The UW Master of Science in Health and Wellness Management is approved by the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
The UW Master of Science in Health and Wellness Management is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and these University of Wisconsin campuses: UW-Green Bay, UW-Parkside, UW-River Falls, UW-Stevens Point, and UW-Superior.
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all partner campuses you will apply to a “home” campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and your diploma. This is an online program, but your degree and transcripts will be identical to those earned by on-campus students.
