Community Health

The Community Health Elective Track uses the entry-level competencies for health education specialists (National Commission for Health Education Credentialing) as a framework and guide in providing students with an appropriate scope and sequence of the necessary knowledge and skills needed for a student completing a master's degree. The learning objectives for this elective track are taken directly from the ten responsibilities for entry level health educators. The competencies and sub-competencies for each area of responsibility are addressed in the elective courses. Learning outcomes for each course are listed in the syllabi.
