The health education specialist certificate program provides students a pathway to become a certified health education specialist. This nationally and globally recognized credential is based on the Seven Areas of Responsibility, which include competencies and subcompetencies that define the role of the health education specialist, as outlined by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing. Earning the health education specialist credential showcases competency-based skills and provides professionals a competitive edge, as more employers prefer certified applicants. Students pursuing or holding a bachelor's degree or graduate-level degree will gain foundational knowledge in the field of health education and health promotion, including program planning, implementation, evaluation and management, as well as other certified health education specialist competencies, and they will learn about specific health education strategies for effectively delivering community and school-based health education interventions.
