What is health education?
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 of working in classrooms and actually teaching children as an integral part of the major. By the time you graduate you are a fully qualified, licensed and experienced health teacher.
The comprehensive school health education curriculum is an organized, sequential K-12 plan for teaching students information and helping them develop life skills that promote health literacy and maintain and improve health, prevent disease, and reduce health-related risk behaviors (Meeks, Heit and Page, 2007).
