Curricula in Health

The goals of the curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science in Health are to more effectively develop literate, informed professionals capable of making the world healthier and more humane. Students receive a general education through a broad exposure to information. They also receive a specialized education through course work designed to help them develop as a professional, expand their knowledge and skills related to health, and prepare them for professional practice.

The curriculum in health offers two options: the Community Health Option and the School Health Option. The Community Health Option prepares health educators for work in public and/or voluntary health agencies. The School Health Option meets the requirements for teacher certification at the secondary level in Texas Public Schools.
