Health Education

The goal of the Health Education Program is to prepare graduates for work in a variety of settings from schools to community health centers to corporate settings. The program stresses independent student work and innovative strategies of broad-spectrum interventions to benefit the individual and contribute to the well-being of society.

The Health Education Program offers two study sequences. The school health education sequence prepares students to teach health education at both the elementary and secondary school level. This sequence is a state-approved licensure program. The community health education sequence addresses the broad range of services offered to communities through health agencies, hospitals, rehabilitation organizations, neighborhood centers, and community action programs. This non-licensure sequence provides students with an academic background in health behavior theory, designing and implementing health interventions as well as a variety of health-related topics.
