Transfer Pattern Description:
This degree pattern provides students with the general courses required to transfer to an institution which offers an undergraduate degree in school or public health education. Beyond the general education requirements and other degree, program, and elective requirements, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.
Graduates of four-year programs may be employed by county or city school systems to teach health at the elementary through high school level. They may also work in public health or corporate wellness positions. Courses can be taken on a full- or part-time basis.
Since four-year institutions vary widely in their requirements, it is strongly recommended that students who wish to pursue studies in this transfer pattern speak with a counselor from the Counseling Center or the program coordinators before registering for courses. This sequence of courses should be adjusted to meet the requirements of the transfer institution.
