Community Health Education (AS)
This program will provide students an opportunity to complete an Associate of Science in Community Health Education. The focus of the program prepares students with the foundational knowledge in Health Education to transfer to a bachelor degree that educates students to serve as program facilitators, health advocates, and referral professionals linking health care and related social services with the under-served communities to reduce health disparities, prevent disease, and encourage healthy behavior change through an integrative health approach. Community Health Professionals use content, educational skills and knowledge to research and assess the needs of a community, develop, implement, coordinate, and evaluate health education programs. Health educators may be employed in community organizations, outreach and industry, family planning and community clinics, advocacy, and work-site promotion. The baccalaureate degree program provides a foundation for students, not only through classroom content but by requiring an internship and many service learning opportunities which will allow students exposure to a variety of graduate degree options.
