M.S. School Health Education

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.

On October 1, 2001, our program submitted a folio for accreditation by the American Association of Health Educators (AAHE) and the National Council of Accreditation for Teacher Education (NCATE). The program is now accredited by the American Association of Health Education. 


The School Health Education Program is in the Exercise Science Department. The Exercise Science Department is one of six departments in the School of Health and Human Services.
