What is a Health Education MS?
The multidisciplinary curriculum spans community assessment, program planning and implementation, and health services research, among other areas. You’ll conclude your studies with a capstone research project and will be given the opportunity to engage in fieldwork, maximizing your practical experience.
The Health Education MS is designed to promote professional and personal development by providing graduates with the knowledge and skills to support public health through health education. The curriculum is based on the responsibilities and competencies of Certified Health Education Specialists (National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc., 2010). Core courses cover the history and philosophy of medicine and public health, assessing community or individual health needs, planning, implementing, and evaluating health promotion programs, and health communications.
