Health Education Concentration
The School of HPER offers a master's degree with a concentration in Health Education which builds on a health-related undergraduate degree. The graduate program offers thesis (30 hours of coursework, 6 hours of thesis) or non-thesis (36 hours of coursework) options.
A Health Education concentration prepares the graduate student for positions with agencies and organizations whose mission is to improve health of the public through education and advocacy. Students in Health Studies are employed in the health field when they enter the program. Many choose to stay in their present position but are able to then infuse more education and advocacy for health in their job.
