According to 2022 data conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in the healthcare field are growing faster than any other sector, and are expected to grow an additional 13% through 2031 — adding roughly 2 million new positions.

The road to a career in health and wellness has many paths, including primary care, prevention, public health, education, policymaking, nutrition and dietetics, and much more. JWU Providence’s College of Health & Wellness offers an integrative, multidisciplinary approach to preparing you for a health-related career.

Your undergraduate core requirements are supplemented by student-selected electives that will make you a strong candidate for roles in public health, dietetics and applied nutrition, healthcare administration, exercise and sports science, or entrance into clinical care.

This will allow you to pursue a major that excites you while completing the necessary requirements to enter the health and wellness field, or continue your studies to become a physician assistant, registered dietitian, occupational therapist, registered nurse, or many others.
