Holistic Health Studies - Certificate

St. Catherine has developed a graduate certificate in holistic health for students who want to explore the content of holistic health, but do not necessarily want to complete the entire graduate degree. This certificate will allow those students to achieve their educational goals. The admission process for the certificate program is identical to the admission process for the degree program.

The following coursework must be completed by the fall semester of the student's second year in the certificate program:
