The Master of Science in school health education is designed to provide students with the necessary academic background to teach health education in grades pre-kindergarten through 12 and to plan, implement, and assess health education programs in the schools. Students completing the program may then obtain either initial certification or a secondary endorsement in school health.
The program currently has four full-time faculty members, three of whom hold a doctorate. The fourth member has two master's degrees and a sixth-year diploma.
The program is accredited by the American Association of Health Education. The School of Education underwent its first accreditation site visit in 2003.
