New Wellness Course for Undergraduates
Posted March 31, 2021
Beginning in Summer 2021, students can opt to fulfill the wellness requirement with APPH 1060: Flourishing - Strategies for Well-being and Resilience.
Everyone experiences some level of stress and adversity in their daily lives. The pressure to perform academically, complete the necessary tasks in a given day, deal with relationship issues, and/or manage financial challenges can be daunting. Learning to effectively manage life stressors is a lifelong skill. The purpose of this course is to help students improve their health and well-being and flourish in their environment by using the conceptual pillars to develop skills related to coping, resiliency, optimism, gratitude, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence. Students will be challenged to evaluate their current overall health/well-being status and identify strategies for improvement in personal and professional growth to achieve a positive, meaningful and fulfilling life.
