MA in Health Arts and Sciences: Bridging Nature, Culture and Healing: The MA in Health Arts & Sciences (HAS MA) degree requires 48 credit hours (four semesters) or 36 credit hours (a three-semester study track for professional, licensed nurses who meet specific admissions criteria). Students in this program learn to promote health and healing for individuals and communities through an individualized curriculum. Student work combines an engaging mix of integrative health studies, holistic sciences, health philosophy, multicultural perspectives, social change, self-awareness, and self-care practices. Students may undertake theoretical and practical study in such areas as community and environmental health, women’s health and midwifery, men’s health, botanical medicine and ethnobotany, nutritional health, expressive arts, body and movement therapies, integrative health systems, integrative nursing, mind-body studies, ecopsychology, and cross- cultural healing. Students shape their studies to become health educators, consultants and counselors, community health education specialists, organizers and activists, environmental health specialists, holistic therapists, integrative health nurses, health researchers, writers, and combinations of these practices.
