Graduates of the new Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coaching program of the University of Minnesota will work in a multitude of practice settings, including hospitals, clinics, health educational facilities, community centers, senior living centers, fitness venues, corporations, schools, and private practice.


A Unique Format

In the 38-credit Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coaching program of the University of Minnesota, all coursework is offered in a blended format—a combination of on-line curriculum with in-person intensives. Students will be required to visit campus no more than 2 weekends per semester, thus making it accessible to students from across the US. 

Students will take a common set of core classes and have an opportunity to do a minor in another department, or an area of concentration from among many options at CSH.

“This unique program, based upon our years of experience in teaching integrative health coaching, will offer new opportunity to those students looking to become leaders and innovators in this young but rapidly evolving field,” said Health Coaching Program Lead Dr. Karen Lawson. “We seek to transform health and healthcare in the United States, and believe that master’s trained integrative health coaches will be powerful agents of such change.”
