This course provides students with the information necessary to design, implement, and to adopt positive behavioral lifestyle changes concerning their personal growth in health and well-being. Topics include assessment of health behaviors, nutrition, and physical and mental well-being; stress management; alcohol and drug education; exercise; sexuality; and a variety of other components that relate to personal understanding of well-being. Students utilize assessment of current physical condition in the development of a personal fitness program. The course involves lecture and assessment, as well as some participation activities. Students cannot take both Wellness: Nutrition, Personal Growth, and Fitness (HSC 1101) and Wellness Concepts (HLP 1081) because of the duplicative nature of the course content.

This course is also offered in Honors format. For Honors Program sections, Honors Program permission is required.
