The Department of Health, Human Movement, & Sport offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Health Promotion (BS.HLP).  Health promotion specialists assist individuals and communities in promoting positive health behaviors.  They have specialized skills in planning, implementing, and evaluating community programs that focus on promoting positive health behavior, delaying the onset of unhealthy behaviors, and changing unhealthy behaviors.

Students majoring in Health Promotion are encouraged to further their professional skills and knowledge by pursuing either the Concentration in School Health or the Concentration in Community Health.

  • The Concentration in Community Health  prepares students for careers in non-school health settings such as public health departments, hospitals, work site health promotion, and non-profit community agencies.  This program prepares students to take the community Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam.
  • The Concentration in School Health  prepares pre-service teacher candidates to be certified to teach health education in public schools.  Graduates also find employment in other health education venues such as community health and safety agencies.
