PUBLIC Health Education Program

EMU's Public Health Education program offers a Master of Science degree in Health Education, an undergraduate degree in Public Health-Community Health Education and an undergraduate minor in Health Education. Both the Public Health Major and  the Master of Science in Health Education prepare culturally competent health education professionals to partner with individuals and communities to prevent disease and injury, and promote health.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of health educators is expected to grow by 16 percent through 2026 as more groups look for ways to promote healthy lifestyles for individuals, families and communities.

A new Graduate Certificate in Health Education has been approved to begin in the Fall 2019 semester.  This 12 credit hour program (4 courses) is designed to provide health care professionals the health education foundation needed to be successful in their careers.  The graduate certificate in Health Education can also serve as a starting point for individuals  interested in the MS in Health Education degree or who are interested in taking the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam.
