An Applied Health Science major is the only of its kind in the Minnesota State University System. Students choose a path to support careers and/or seek further training in health education and promotion or other allied health professions.
Career opportunities may include working in patient education, community or worksite health promotion, public health agencies, health organizations, insurance companies, businesses or healthcare settings.
A degree in Applied Health Science major offers four career tracks: Health Education and Promotion; Public Health; Occupational Therapy Prep; and, Healthcare Administration Prep.
The graduate program in Applied Health Science (formerly called Community Health Education), is focused on advanced learning experiences related to health education and promotion in public health, community health, school and clinical settings.
