School Health

What is School Health?

A major in Health Promotion - School Health will give you an introduction to the main ideas and theories of health and health behavior but also focus on how to teach health in schools.

You get a great deal of hands-on experience working in classrooms and actually teaching children/adolescents as an integral part of the major.

When you graduate you will be a fully qualified, licensed and experienced health teacher.
