Admission to this major is suspended.
Successful completion of the health education major makes the candidate eligible for K-12 teacher licensure in Michigan.
Students must complete the education sequence required by the Department of Teaching, Learning, and Educational Studies, including the intern teaching experience. Subject area tests of competence administered by the Michigan Department of Education must be passed prior to certification by that agency. In addition, Health Education majors must serve as a teaching assistant for one semester in a content specific course (i.e., HPHE 1110, 1810, 2200, 2210, 2220, 3160, 3170, 3810). Students must complete HPHE 1550, 2200, 2210, and 2220 prior to application for teaching assistantship. Candidates should obtain teaching assistant applications from the Human Performance and Health Education department office to register for this experience. Health Education majors are expected to have valid first aid and CPR certificates prior to intern teaching or an internship.
