What is Health Studies?
Our degrees prepare students to direct, create, or evaluate health education programs that promote wellness and prevent disease. The curriculum centers around the Areas of Responsibility outlined by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) and enables graduates of our program to sit for the CHES national certification exam and become a Certified Health Education Specialist. Many employers in the field of health promotion/health education are requiring this certification.
Most health educators work in medical care settings, colleges and universities, schools, public health departments, nonprofit organizations, and private business.
