School of Health, Wellness & Public Safety (HWPS)

The Health, Wellness, and Public Safety (HWPS) major is a Certificate of Completion program that prepares students for many HWPS programs at CNM.  It helps students fulfill the General Education and Choice requirements for Associate of Applied Science degrees required by the State of New Mexico and the CNM core curriculum. Individual HWPS programs may require that students take specific courses within the General Education and Choice requirements for the purpose of transfer or for meeting industry standards and accreditation guidelines. This Certificate of Completion is intended as a pass through certification to demonstrate student progress towards the completion of requirements for a HWPS Associate of Applied Science degree.
