Students will explore the interconnectedness of body and mind wellbeing through an experiential, interdisciplinary study that blends theory, research and practice. Offered through the Department of Physical Education and Mind Body Health, core course work includes foundations in yoga, mindfulness and stress management for a comprehensive approach to healthy living. Interdisciplinary course work examines mental and physical health for a multi-dimensional view of mind-body awareness and connection. This minor is designed for students who want to add a dimension of wellbeing to their personal and academic lives. It is particularly suited for those with career interests in health care, physical therapy, psychology or social work. 

Required Course Work (20 units): Students will complete a combination of experiential classes in Physical Education and Mind Body Health, as well as theory and research-based interdisciplinary electives.

Minimum Units: 20

Note: No more than 4 units of physical education activity courses may be applied to a student’s overall unit requirement, toward his or her USC degree.

*Core courses may not double count as electives.
