* The School Health Education master's degree provides teachers with the knowledge and skills necessary to instill in school-age students the information needed to make healthy decisions regarding well-being. We believe that experiential instruction, coupled with critical thinking skills, enables students to be informed health consumers. We seek to provide an optimal experience for our students to be models and mentors for their own students.
* For admission to this program, one must be in possession of a teaching certificate for their state of residence. A copy of your teaching certificate is required for admission. The program is designed for those who do not have health teaching certification or those who do and wish to obtain a graduate degree in this area.
West Virginia University is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
