San Francisco State University
Health Education B.S.
The Bachelor of Science in Health Education is a community-focused program that is designed to facilitate voluntary changes in individual health behaviors as well as to advocate for social and economic policies which lead to health promotion and disease prevention for all. This program prepares individuals to plan, implement, and evaluate programs for providers of health and human services such as public health departments, voluntary health agencies, community-based organizations, community clinics, and hospitals.
The course work and field experience in health education have three primary objectives: (1) to provide a theoretical and philosophical foundation in principles of community health education; (2) to facilitate the development of professional skills in program planning, implementation, and evaluation; and (3) to offer broad course work in personal, community, and school health. Students are also expected to complete course work in biological, social, and behavioral sciences.
The B.S. in Health Education includes 11 units of prerequisites, 42 core units and 9-12 units in one of three areas of emphasis: Community-based Public Health, Holistic Health Studies, and School Health.
