Teaching kids how to be healthy and practice good hygiene is only part of what a health education major covers. As a health education specialist, you could find yourself working in a community setting, on a college campus, hospitals or even in a corporate setting.
You’ll start with the basics of human anatomy and physiology and progress with a variety of health classes along with preparation for student teaching. The following concentrations give you the option to specialize in a particular area of interest.
College is more than a classroom. Enhance your experience with extracurricular opportunities: Combine academic course work with out-of-class experiences that provide direct contact with health and education professionals. Such experiences include a well-developed internship program and independent study opportunities.
