Pursue your passion

Health Education Licensure

The online health education licensure courses are designed for those who have current teaching license/certifications in other teaching fields and want to add health education. Every state has requirements on how to add health education to a teaching license and our graduate health education courses can be used to meet these requirements.

If your state requires you to complete a state accredited health education program:

We have created graduate level courses meeting all of the accreditation requirements for health education in the state of Kansas. Be sure to review the course requirements. Most people transfer in the undergraduate requirements (each person’s transcripts are evaluated to determine which courses they still need to complete), but if you have not you can still complete those online as well.
