Health and Wellness Studies
The Department of Health and Wellness Studies faculty at Binghamton University are strongly committed to teaching the practical skills and behaviors of healthy living with firm cognitive underpinnings. Our unique role on campus is to engage all students in the development of personal tools important for life-long wellness: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental.
The Division of Health and Wellness Studies empowers Binghamton University students to make informed health decisions and inspires them to pursue life-long wellness.
Through the study of health and wellness science, students will acquire the knowledge and develop the motivation necessary to achieve constructive health behaviors and enhanced functional capacities. Our mission is to integrate the foundations of wellness including, but not limited to, proper nutrition, stress management, emotional and physical health. Students will develop the critical thinking skills to evaluate the maze of conflicting health information. The overall goal is to promote academic and personal success and to maximize positive health outcomes.
