Master of Science in Health Studies - Health Promotion

The master's degree in Health Promotion is a fully online, 30-credit hour program which emphasizes the practical application of health promotion methods supported by theoretical foundations, relevant research and best practices.

Graduates will be able to design, implement, manage, and evaluate health promotion programs in a variety of settings, including federal, state, and local governmental agencies, HMOs, hospitals, public and private schools, colleges and universities, voluntary health agencies (e.g., American Heart Association), and private enterprises such as business and industry.

Our graduates have accepted positions as program directors at private and government agencies, senior research assistants in hospitals and education arenas, and corporate and community fitness and wellness leaders.

Students in health promotion must complete an applied project grounded in the practical application of health promotion methods and a comprehensive examination. Resident students may apply for a graduate assistantship.
