The program generally takes two years, depending upon prior education and experience. The program includes 26 hours of required courses that are intended to provide an overall knowledge of the public health field and the tools necessary for successful functioning as a community health education specialist; hours of fieldwork experience in the summer; and a thesis. Students entering the program are expected to have completed undergraduate course work in data collection and processing, including issues of measurement and questionnaire design, computerization, descriptive health measures, and statistical analysis through regression. Courses must have been completed with grades of B or better. Deficiencies in these areas will require additional course work, as necessary, for successful completion of the degree. A non-thesis option is available with permission from the department.
