Two minors in health education are offered; candidates may choose one of two professional preparation options: 1) School Emphasis or 2) Community Education Emphasis. The school emphasis is especially appropriate for those specializing in middle/junior high school education, in special education, and in secondary education with majors in such areas as biology, physical education, English, math, and family and consumer sciences. Candidates also must pass subject area tests of competence administered by the Michigan Department of Education prior to certification by that office. School health minors are expected to have valid first aid and CPR certificates prior to teaching. Students completing requirements are eligible for certification to teach health education in grades 6-12 in Michigan. The Community Education emphasis prepares students to assume careers in non-school settings such as community health agencies and private health-oriented organizations. Students completing the community health emphasis minor are not eligible for a teaching license.
