Health Education Mission Statement

The Health Education program offers courses of study to prepare Health Education specialists at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students are prepared to assume Health Education positions in schools, community, public health agencies, and in health care and worksite settings. The national guidelines delineating the Roles and Responsibilities of Health Education Specialists serve as the basis for the course of studies at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, special attention is given to preparing students to work within multi-cultural, multi-ethnic communities in ways that respect and support the healthy development of families and individuals within those communities.
