The thing that drew me to Health, Wellness and Occupational Studies...was its holistic approach to wellness and paying equal attention in the curriculum to the physical aspects of the body but also the psychological aspects.
Health, Wellness and Occupational Studies

One-of-a-kind Location

As a student in our Department of Health, Wellness, and Occupational Studies program, you study on UNE's scenic Biddeford Campus, where the waters of the Saco River flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years, this confluence of natural resources has inspired students and faculty from around the world. Recently named the youngest city in Maine, Biddeford and its twin city, Saco, boast an up-and-coming, hip downtown offering delicious eateries, exciting social and cultural events, and more. With the transformation of the old Biddeford/Saco mills into restaurants, breweries, housing, fitness facilities, salons, and retailers, there is something for everyone to explore in downtown. Looking to try a new type of food, grab a coffee, or shop for locally-made clothes? Biddeford/Saco has it all.
