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. Our future health education specialists are prepared to work with individuals, families, and communities to maximize and maintain healthy lifestyles. We aim to accomplish this 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, we have strong interdisciplinary linkages to other researchers and professionals in allied health fields.

The Department of Health Behavior supports a traditional academic model (face-to-face). The requirements can be found on the program requirements tab. The traditional model offers a thesis, or non-thesis option, each requiring the same number of credits.

This program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology.
