Department of Health Behavior

Interim Department Head: Mark E. Benden CPE, PhD

The Department of Health Behavior promotes healthy living and prepares students to identify the role of biological, behavioral, environmental, and social forces on population health. Our students will have the opportunity to apply these elements when planning and evaluating programs, services and policies designed to improve the health of individuals and communities.

Our health promotion and community health students have opportunities to work in a broad and diverse range of organizations. Our students have worked locally, state-wide, nationally and internationally for non-profits, government agencies and corporations in jobs that promote and improve health.
