The Health Promotion Teacher Licensure minor is focused on preparing future grade 7-12 teachers to mee the needs of their students in the areas of interpersonal relationships, physical activity, diet, mental/emotional health, human sexuality, and drug use and abuse. Students will be engaged in hands-on learning experiences such as implementing a school health fair in a public school setting.
Students must be enrolled in a teacher licensure major in order to participate in the minor. Students who wish to be eligible to teach at the jr. high level will also need to complete the required Middle Level course work to be eligible for licensure for grades 7-8, even if their major leads to a K-12 licensure in that discipline. For more information consult your academic advisor, or the Chair of the Department of Health Promotion.
