Integrate Holistic Health into Your Profession and Life
At the core of the holistic health graduate certificate 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
Classes will be held in a synchronous online format; there may be some on-campus experiences in St. Paul, MN, beginning with orientation* prior to the start of your first semester.
