The Master of Science (M.S.) in Health Education is a fully on-line program that consists of thirty credit-hours of coursework and six credit-hours of either an internship or thesis. The curriculum includes instruction in Health Education program planning, implementation, and evaluation. Students are introduced to graduate level research methods and may select from courses about physical activity, nutrition, or other health-related behaviors.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared to work in communities, schools, healthcare settings, and government agencies. Graduates are prepared to take the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam, which is the gold standard credential for health educators.
