Health Promotion- Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health

Health promotion encourages individuals and groups of people to improve and/or maintain their health status. Health promotion focuses on health, not disease – although each are discussed in light of the other in order to generate critical thinking, reasoning, and other basic principles of liberal education and lifelong learning. Using key frameworks like the Ecological Model and the PRECEDE-PROCEED Model, our students understand their role in social systems and communities, both local and global, and generate an appreciation for the role that environments and health behaviors play in the quality of life of human beings across the lifespan.
