It really all depends on what you want to do in the field. There are sooo many options these days. I am a lawyer by day but just finished my masters in Health & Wellness coaching with a concentration in Herbal Medicine from MUIH. I say do lots of research, talk to lots of people and figure out a coupe of specific areas you'd be interested in and then check out whether its valuable in those areas to have further education, and if so what kind. Best of luck!

KIEYA’s Answer

Hello,

I just graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a bachelors degree in Biobehavioral Health and I absolutely loved it. My field is a combination of biology, psychology, sociology, and human development aiming to promote healthy behaviors in order to prevent communicable and non communicable diseases. I love how my field is broad so I can go into any sort of topic I want to touch on. I had an internship in which I facilitated workshops on variety of health topics including nutrition and fitness, safer sex, sleep, stress, and alcohol. I think that this was challenging but definitely not strenuous or unbearable.

KIEYA recommends the following next steps:

My advice to you is to gain volunteer and internship experience promoting health. Great programs are The American Red Cross and AmeriCorps.
I would also make a Linked In account so you can start making connections with other people who are into health and wellness that way you can potentially find a job in the future.
I would look into going to a school like Penn State because I absolutely loved PSU. #weare
