    Program Information:
    The Public Health Education major provides students with interdisciplinary training that is essential to recognizing and addressing public health issues at the state, national and global levels. The B.S. in Public Health Education prepares students in the fundamental skills and competencies needed to plan, initiate and manage public health education programs. The curriculum provides general knowledge regarding public health principles and practice augmented by optional concentrated study in Community Health, Worksite Health Promotion and Patient Education and Health Coaching. Field work provides students with experiences that incorporate classroom learning into public health education practice and prepares students for future employment. 

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Public Health Education degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)

    2. PHE Program Capstone Experience, HPE 4750, is required for completion of program.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
