Career Options for a Master's in Health and Wellness Management

If you’re passionate about healthy living and helping others, consider a career in health and wellness management. The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Health & Wellness Management program at the Tulane School of Professional Advancement offers students professional development opportunities by preparing them for healthcare careers outside the traditional clinic setting. After graduation, our students regularly go on to enjoy increased financial earnings and success in careers like these.

Health and Wellness Coach

We’re constantly bombarded by information and advertisements about the latest health trends, products, and news. A health and wellness coach essentially sorts through all this information to arm clients with the tools and information they need to lead a healthier lifestyle. Similar to a counselor, a coach guides clients on their journeys to meet their health goals, from losing weight to managing stress. Health coaches often work independently, at schools and workplaces, and at medical and wellness centers.

Wellness Coordinator

Another career option the MPS degree can prepare you for is the wellness coordinator. Wellness coordinators work with larger groups of people, essentially looking at the “big picture” of wellness, rather than each client’s individual situation. These people often work for businesses, schools, or corporations, assessing the wellness needs of the people who work or go to school there. They use this information to design wellness plans that promote healthy lifestyles within the organization.

Behavioral Health Specialist

If you’re interested in mental and behavioral health, the Health & Wellness Management Program can help you prepare to pursue a career as a behavioral health specialist. You’ll help people change their patterns of behavior to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Your goal is to prepare them to overcome obstacles that negatively affect their lives. Behavioral health specialists work in schools, hospitals, clinics, and out in the community.

If you’re tired of your job and are interested in a career change and increased earning potential, consider a master’s degree from the Tulane School of Professional Advancement. The Master of Professional Studies in Health & Wellness Management can prepare you for a rewarding career helping others improve their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. We also offer bachelor’s degrees in health and wellness. Our degrees and programs are designed for working adults, with online courses and financial assistance available.
