Two certificates of graduate study can be earned as a master’s student. This certificate is designed for students who are seeking endorsement on a current teaching certificate, for students who are also seeking initial teacher certification, and for students pursuing continuing education regarding health teaching methods and content. Course work for this certificate may be applied toward state endorsement requirements; however, additional course work may be necessary depending on prior course work. In addition, students who have previously obtained a baccalaureate degree may apply these courses toward initial teacher certification.
Potential applicants for the certificate should consult with a program adviser. Admission to the certificate requires the approval of an admissions committee. Procedures for admission to study toward the certificate and other detailed information are available from the public health and health education programs office.
