Integrative Health Studies (IHS)

The Integrative Health Studies (BA) major is interdisciplinary and provides students with an overview of evidence-based complementary and alternative health practices. In addition to core science courses and labs, students will have the opportunity to study acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, nutrition and natural products, mind-body therapies, and body-based practices. This major provides preparation for students interested in professional study in medicine, osteopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, nutrition, and allied health studies in occupational therapy, physical therapy, and physician assistant studies. It prepares students to meet the demands of a broadening healthcare industry, and a clientele that expects their healthcare providers to have an understanding of integrative health practices.
