Program Description:

The Graduate Certificate in Health and Wellness is designed to prepare educators to teach health, fitness and wellness principles including information about risk behaviors and choices made by adolescents. In addition, this group of courses comprises one-half of the course work needed for a health education certification in the state of Florida. The health certificate is needed by teachers who teach Life Management Skills, a required course in Florida high schools. These courses may also be of interest to students and community members from many different disciplines concerned with youth and adolescent development.
