Health Promotion Sciences (Certificate)

About the Program

Health Promotion Sciences is founded on a social-ecological framework that utilizes a strategic combination of health promotion approaches (environmental, universal, selected, and indicated) specifically designed to improve health outcomes for an entire population. The health promotion sciences curriculum expands on traditional health education to identify and change policies, sociocultural norms, and systemic biases that contribute to poor health in populations. All coursework utilizes applied learning experiences through faculty-directed research, community-based learning, internships, and cooperative education. Graduates are prepared for careers in regional and local health promotion programs in business, industry, nonprofit agencies, government, health-care organizations, as well as health planning and improvement agencies.
