Health Promotion Concentration (34 credits)


The Health Promotion concentration prepares students to work with individuals and populations to change/modify behavior to ultimately help improve their quality of life. Students will have the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to enact change while focusing on individual needs. The program is grounded in theory, utilizes effective models and employs a pedagogical approach as our majors apply what is learned in class during fieldwork and internships. As a result, our students develop critical thinking and leaderships skills essential for professional practice in health promotion. The program focuses on program planning, research, assessment, multicultural health perspectives, leadership and empowerment, communication and advocacy, organization and administration, grant writing and resource allocation, a variety of health related courses, and a strong science background. Students may enter the health promotion program at any point but to graduate on time, entrance should occur by the spring semester of the sophomore year.  In order to continue in the program, students must have earned a grade of C- or better in ENGL 165 , have earned satisfactory professional disposition rankings from department faculty, an overall grade point average of 2.5, and a grade point average of 2.75 in the major.
