Graduate College | Henrietta Schmoll School of Health
Holistic health is also known as integrative, complementary, or alternative healthcare. It crosses borders, disciplines, time, religions, and ways of healing to benefit individuals, communities, and the environment. Our holistic health studies graduate certificate draws from the best of modern scientific medicine and cross-cultural healing wisdom passed down over centuries. A Master of Arts in Holistic Health Studies degree is also available.
Each new Holistic Health Studies certificate student will be considered for up to $2,500 in funding from these scholarship programs: Innovation in Holistic Health, diversity, alumni and academic achievement.
Certificate students employed by St. Kate’s corporate partners also receive a scholarship, reducing tuition costs by 10%.
Integrate Holistic Health into Your Profession and Life
At the core of the holistic health studies program is a commitment to cultural diversity and a respect for indigenous and ancient healing practices. The graduate curriculum draws on knowledge from all corners of life and all disciplines of study. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of healing traditions, along with your own cultural influences, as you investigate the historic constructs underpinning today's medical systems.
St. Kate’s academic and experiential program gives you the tools to integrate holistic health into a variety of professions and fields. Our holistic health studies certificate graduates apply their research-based knowledge, entrepreneurial spirit, caring, and creativity in a wide variety of capacities:
healthcare providers who are seeking to integrate holistic and complementary skills into their practice
mental health practitioners
educators and other human development professionals
independent professionals already working as, or seeking to work as, alternative and complementary health practitioners
