This advanced graduate certificate of health and wellness is designed to increase the content knowledge of individuals teaching health classes in K-12 school settings. Courses are offered both online and in a classroom to offer a flexible hybrid learning experience. Specialists will be exposed to a holistic view of both individual and societal health in which current health trends are examined.
This program is grounded in experiential learning and aims to foster an understanding of this dynamic field. Throughout the program, the student will participate in various learning activities, including: 50 observation hours, interviews, field assignments, presentations, tests, article reviews, community explorations, and panel discussions about weekly readings. Based on most Physical Education & Sport Pedagogy curriculum, these additional classes complete the targeted 30 credits of content knowledge in health that New York State requires for certifying health teachers.
This program does not lead to college recommendation for NYS teacher certification.
