SUMMARY

Studying Health and Wellness is a valuable choice and naturally an obligatory first step for scholars coveting to pursue a career as a community athletic director, a health educator, or a corporate wellness director. Interestingly, nationally, health and wellness is a fairly common choice ranking as the 107th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 3,280 health and wellness graduates. In-state tuition for health and wellness at private institutions is, on average, 3.3 times more pricey than their public equivalents.

With only 118 institutions having programs for health and wellness there might be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other health and wellness undergrads, consider institutions in Texas which have more undergrads admitted to health and wellness than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to pursue health and wellness is in the Southwest region with University of Houston, Texas A & M University-College Station, and The University of Texas at San Antonio best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to major in health and wellness is the Mountain West Conference with University of Nevada-Reno representing the conference.
