Master of Science in Health Education

This advanced degree is designed to train and mentor the next generation of health education specialists that provide and manage programs through the provision of foundational and professional classroom education combined with real-world opportunities. Future health education specialists are prepared to work with individuals, families and communities to maximize and maintain healthy lifestyles. This is accomplished through faculty with strong academic credentials, ties to health education settings, and in-depth knowledge and expertise in the responsibilities, competencies, and socio-cultural health issues; further, there are strong interdisciplinary linkages to other researchers and professionals in allied fields.

This program supports both a traditional academic model (face-to-face) and is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology.  The requirements can be found on the program requirements tab.  The traditional model offers a thesis, non-thesis and teacher certification option, each requiring the same number of credits.
