Build a healthier community with the UW-Stevens Point School of Health Sciences and Wellness
The School of Health Sciences and Wellness at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point prepares students to help people live more healthfully in a variety of high-demand occupations. Our students study the science behind health and the art of how to help people get there.
35 educational opportunities–including undergraduate majors and options, graduate degree programs and certificates at both levels–we have a path for everyone who has discovered their passion for healthy living. Whether students are zoned in on their academic and career goals or exploring their fit in this area, all students benefit from common curriculum and a shared understanding of the principles that health and wellness practitioners follow, with detailed, discipline-specific training from their major
faculty and staff.
UW-Stevens Point established the first college degree program in
wellness in the world, and we continue to be a leader in the field. Our goal is to develop students' skills that enable mental toughness, optimal physical and mental performance, strong leadership, and goal achievement to build a more adaptive, healthy and resilient workforce that can grow and thrive in the face of challenges and bounce back from adversity.

Healthy Impact on Community
