Health Promotion & Wellness

The Health Promotion and Wellness online degree program prepares you to improve the quality of life for individuals and groups in your community as a health educator or community health worker.  From working with children struggling with obesity, to organizing community fundraisers, or being a health policy advocate - the career opportunities are endless.  Graduates of the program work to encourage healthy lifestyles and promote wellness through education in the workplace and in communities by:

  • Leading the development, planning and implementation of corporate strategies to promote employee or client health and well-being;
  • Collecting and analyzing data to identify community needs prior to program development and implementation;
  • Evaluating programs designed to encourage healthy lifestyles, policies, and environments.

Students who complete the curriculum graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Health Promotion and Wellness and are eligible to take the national certification exam to become a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES). 

The curriculum is 100% online with the exception of a three-hour clinical experience and a nine hour internship-all completed in your area!
