M.S. - Health Studies, Ed.D - Health Studies; PhD - Health Studies
The master's and doctoral degree programs in the Department of Health Studies prepare graduates for leadership positions in the disciplines of health education and health promotion. The graduate curricula are designed to enable students to function in a variety of professional environments, including community, work site, health care, public health, and academic settings. The core curriculum provides students with a blend of health education and health promotion theory and practice. Students are also required to select one of the three focal areas - community, health management, or higher education - which provides course concentration on programming and professional practice in those areas. Opportunities for hands-on practical experience in the field are offered through the graduate practicum.
