Health Education - 6-12 Teacher Certification

The Department of HPELS offers a state approved Health Education (grades 6-12) “B” level certificate program in conjunction with the Department of Leadership and Teacher Education. The program prepares teacher candidates to plan, implement, and evaluate health education programs in the secondary school setting. Course work and applied field experiences are designed to enable candidates to provide health education that includes developmentally appropriate information and skills through a variety of teaching strategies. Course work provides evaluation of student performance, and addresses influences of media, culture, and technology on student behavior. Examples of content area course work include educational foundations, personal and community health, nutrition, human anatomy and physiology, educational psychology and drug education.
