Health promotion combines health education with related organizational, economic, or political interventions. These programs are designed to create behavioral or environmental changes that result in improved public health. Research and practice in health promotion may occur in a variety of settings such as school, community, worksite, or health care.
The focus for health education can be on young children, adolescents, adults, and senior adults. This program also studies the effects of health education research on organizational and community contexts. Students’ courses emphasize a multidisciplinary, bio-behavioral and developmental approach to health promotion.
A diverse faculty, coupled with research and applied opportunities within and outside the university, provide an excellent environment to explore these areas of curriculum and research. Students will graduate with a unique set of skills that will make them ready for their careers, or further research.
Our program offers two Health Behavior and Health Education master’s programs: a Master of Education (M.Ed.) that does not require a thesis and a Master of Science (M.S.) with a thesis.
