Girard School of Business

Admission Requirements

Please refer to the pre-requisites for the Master of Science in Health and Wellness Management. 

Additional Requirements

The M.S. in Health and Wellness Management requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in a health-related field such as public health, health education/health promotion, exercise science/kinesiology, human performance, human nutrition, biomechanics, or a closely related field. 

If you have a bachelor’s degree in a science field, but one that is not considered a direct healthcare profession (e.g., biology, biomedical sciences, etc.), or a non-science degree in a field such as health communications, healthcare administration, psychology/sociology, human development, education, or another field, you may be required to take an additional undergraduate course prior to enrolling or while concurrently taking courses in the graduate program, as follows:

  • One approved public health, health education/promotion, or related course with a grade of B or better

Prerequisite coursework can be taken at any accredited college/university, including Merrimack College. It must be completed with a grade B or better prior to enrolling in graduate classes.  


If you have questions about prerequisite coursework, contact the Office of Graduate Admission at or 978-837-3563.
