Health Education

  • A degree in Health Education is a way to positively impact people’s lives – young or old – by enhancing their overall health and well-being through exercise, nutrition, personal growth and safety. With a Health Education degree, you will learn about all facets of physical, mental, social and emotional health and help people to make smart decisions to improve their lives. To excel as a leader in today’s diverse classrooms, you will also take required courses for teacher licensure.
