Health Behavior Concentration
The School of H&K offers a master's degree with a concentration in Health Behavior which builds on a health-related undergraduate degree. The graduate program offers two MS degree options: thesis (30 hours of coursework, 6 hours of thesis) or non-thesis (36 hours of coursework and a comprehensive exam).
A Health Behavior concentration prepares the graduate student for positions with agencies and organizations whose mission is to improve health of the public through education and advocacy. Many choose to stay in their present position but are able to then infuse more education and advocacy for health in their job.
