The Health Communications concentration introduces students to formalized training in public relations campaigns, persuasion, interpersonal communications, and media relations. With health literacy a global concern, the integration of these communication courses with health science coursework prepares students to focus on population health through written and oral correspondences such as public service announcements, public health campaigns, social marketing efforts, and policy analysis. Health science coursework includes anatomy, physiology, epidemiology, health education, biostatistics, health promotion planning and evaluation, research, and behavior theory, along with an internship in a health organization. Graduates are eligible to sit for the Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES) examination.
