Students who earn certification in health education will be licensed to teach children in the age ranges of 3 years to 21 years. Certified teachers may work in public and private school systems. Various degree combinations allow the student to specialize in varied areas. A second major, teaching or non-teaching, is required for this degree program.
The certification program in Health Education is based on high expectations; each student who chooses to become a teacher through study in this program needs to make a commitment to excellence in teaching in these areas.
