Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Health Education at JFK University prepares graduates to enter the exciting field of health education. The field of health education is experiencing a time of significant growth in terms of the number of opportunities available to individuals with a degree in health education Our graduates work in hospital and clinical settings, schools and universities, and for health care corporations including insurance companies and corporate wellness companies. They are developing, delivering, and managing health education programs. Our graduates also have created their own educational platforms, consulting businesses, and health coaching practices. It is important to note that we are not training students to become holistic health practitioners. On several fronts, the interconnection among body, mind, spirit, and community is gaining recognition. For example, the latest advances in medical research substantiate the vital role of the mind in determining physical well-being. There is increasing awareness of the importance of other dimensions of health beyond the physical: mental, emotional, spiritual, community, and environmental aspects of health all contribute to our ability to live well. Our holistic approach to health education offers us the capacity to take an active and essential role in shaping the future of our individual and collective health. This program is designed to provide a dynamic, holistic learning experience in which students learn to attend to multiple dimensions of health and to employ holistic methods in the design, implementation, and management of health education for individuals and communities.
