School Health Education (M) - Online

The mission of the M.S. in School Health program focuses on preparing school health professionals to provide public health leadership on school campuses in their roles as teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses and administrators. Our program emphasizes the importance of creating an environment in which students are most likely to choose healthy behaviors that support academic success and positive life outcomes. This includes providing excellent health education services, developing a safe and supportive school culture characterized by positive relationships with concerned adults and peers, advocating for school policies that support student wellbeing, and working collaboratively with parents, other caregivers and the community-at-large to support student and school success.
