George Mason University offers two well-being minors, which are each open to ALL Mason students.

The Well-Being Minor provides students with an understanding of the nature of human consciousness, including historical foundations and modern research. Through required coursework, students develop an ability to implement personal practices that foster deeper self-awareness, the regulation of stress factors in his or her life, and an emerging sense of meaning for his or her life.

The Music for Well-Being Minor is designed to allow participation by students with minimal formal musical training. The coursework allows students to explore the connections between music and consciousness and between vibration, mindfulness, and well-being.

Mason also offers a Music for Well-Being Graduate Certificate.
