The purpose of this proposal is to request three changes to the existing Bachelor of Science Community Health Education Program.
1. Change the current 6-credit Practicum/Internship to 4-credit hours. Our intent is to align the course with national standards in the field of Health Education, and align it to similar capstone experiences within the School of Education, Health, and Human Performance.
2. By changing the Practicum/Internship from 6 to 4 credit hours, modification to the requirements for the major and the minor are necessary.
3. Align the community health education minor with national standards.
