Implementing an Integrative Health Humanities Certificate Program

A three-year project to implement a health humanities certificate program.

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will implement an Integrative Health Humanities Certificate that engages four humanities departments as well as departments of Psychology, Social Work, Biology, and the Institute for Health Sciences. Its integrated curriculum requires students to take a core course: Health Humanities, and engage in an experiential practice, including collaborative research and internship opportunities. Focusing on long-term sustainability we will 1) Develop new and revise existing courses, and create an interdisciplinary Advisory Board responsible for assessment 2) Expand on existing experiential learning opportunities and build a system to track student participation and 3) Create a public-facing website to house ongoing Health Humanities projects. Our program will enroll 25 students in year 1 and 75 annually by year 5. This certificate will play a crucial role in realizing the University’s goal of attaining national distinction in “health and wellbeing” by 2025.
