With the changes in health care laws, individuals who understand corporate wellness are in demand. NCU’s master’s degree in Corporate Wellness specialization covers health and wellness education concepts that address how to create an optimal mind, a body and spirit approach to health and wellness through research and practice. In this specialization, you will explore health and wellness education research with an emphasis on practical approaches to the corporate industry dealing with worksite health promotion, public preventative health services, and current topics in corporate fitness and wellness.

Certification and Licensing

The School of Education serves educational leaders by providing online graduate studies in education to reach worldwide populations. The MEd program is designed to reach national and international markets and does not purport to provide licensure or certification in any particular state or country. Certification requirements vary by state. Students are advised to contact their state department of education or local school district for guidance in obtaining certification or licensure, or for approval in fulfilling district level incentive programs.

There are several reasons why an educator would want to pursue a graduate degree in education that does not lead to state licensing or certification.

Reasons may include:

  • "Move up" steps on the salary schedule.
  • Improve skills and professionalism in general or to pursue a ”leadership” position outside the classroom (school-based or district level).
  • Advance as a ”teacher leader” through a graduate degree (already has a bachelor's degree and certification).
  • Meet the needs of increasingly diverse students.
  • Work in a traditional K-12 classroom environment (trainer, educational consultant, etc).
