Health and nutrition education courses
The subjects of health and nutrition are vital topics for the wellbeing of students. These areas impact not just their daily standard of living, but can also affect them long into the future. This means that these are also important areas of focus for educators.
It takes special training in order to effectively share health and nutrition related information with the classroom. Our health courses help you build on foundational knowledge by exploring ideas and resources for effective health education.
Health education courses can help round out your base of knowledge as an educator. Some of the topics covered include wellness, sexually transmitted diseases and substance abuse. These classes might also help you meet criteria for potential recertification, endorsements and professional development.
Our health and nutrition education courses feature:
- Small class sizes for more personal guidance.
- Convenient and flexible online courses.
- Experienced faculty with real-world experience.
- A range of helpful resources.
As a student you will also have access to support and tools designed to help you succeed, including a comprehensive online library and writing assistance. Take a single class for personal growth or professional development, or work toward a degree. Please note, if you plan on transferring to an outside educational institution, it is important that you check with them first to determine if credits are transferrable.
