Considering grad school?
Looking for a field with predicted job growth?
Want a career where you can really make a difference?
Want to have a unique set of skills that could make you more competitive in the market?
Tai Sophia Institute’s MS in Health Education and Integrative Health could be the answer for you — and you could begin as soon as January 2013!
What do Health Educators do?
The simplest description is that you’d work from a holistic and prevention-oriented model (as opposed to a disease-focused model) to evaluate the needs of communities, organizations, businesses, and institutions and then create innovative educational programs to really help them. You actually work to tackle our nation’s health challenges head on, one community or organization at a time.
So, what about jobs in the field?
“Very few fields are growing as fast as health education—more than double the national average,” says acting program director James Snow. As a graduate from this program, you’ll be prepared to take the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam, which is the national standard in the field.
Your skills will be in demand in a variety of health-related settings, including:
- Corporate wellness programs
- State, local, and government agencies
- Nonprofit health organizations
- Insurance companies
- Medical and fitness centers
- Universities and colleges
What are the requirements?
A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college is required. All undergraduate majors are accepted without the need for prerequisites.
What about the GREs?
No standardized tests are required for admission.
How does the program format work?
The 40-credit program is offered in a flexible, weekend format that can be completed in two years, so you can work while going to school and travel to attend classes if you don’t live nearby.
Why come to school at Tai Sophia?
Although there are many health education programs in the country, ours offers graduates a unique skill set in integrative health. You’ll become familiar with holistic disciplines, like acupuncture and herbal medicine, and learn about the health benefits of mindfulness, yoga, and other exciting practices. You’ll also learn the science behind health practices in a way that is easy to understand and meaningful. Additionally, when you come to school here, you join a connected community of like-minded students and faculty.
Oh, and we are accredited by the same accrediting bodies as other major universities.
