Accredited Health and Human Services Degree Programs

Health and Human Services incorporates a wide spectrum of health perspectives, including physical, emotional, financial and personal.

Many health care professionals recognize the importance of addressing health and wellness in its totality and are taking a holistic approach in their practice focusing on one or more of these areas of health and wellness. Touro University Worldwide offers degree programs that focus on the mind, body and spirit for professional and personal development.
