At least 20 credits of HLTH 3xxx or higher applied to the BASc must be taken from UMD.
Introductory Course (1 cr)
This course will be waived for transfer students with 24 credits taken post high school or students who change to CEHSP from a collegiate unit where it is not required. Register course for one credit.
UST 1000 - UMD Seminar (1.0-2.0 cr)
Program Sub-plans
Students are required to complete one of the following sub-plans.
Community Health Education/Promotion
Students who complete the B.A.Sc. in Public Health with a concentration in community health education/promotion will be trained to educate and promote health for individuals and groups through their work in public health departments, government health agencies, voluntary health organizations, hospitals, corporate worksites, and universities. This concentration prepares students to sit for the national Certified Health Education Specialist exam and to apply the Seven Areas of Responsibility for the Health Education Specialist (NCHEC, 2015) in community settings: Area 1–Assess Needs, Resources and Capacity for Health Education/Promotion; Area 2–Plan Health Education/Promotion; Area 3–Implement Health Education/Promotion; Area 4–Conduct Evaluation and Research Related to Health Education/Promotion ; Area 5–Administer and Manage Health Education/Promotion; Area 6–Serve as a Health Education/Promotion Resource Person; Area 7 –Communicate, Promote, and Advocate for Health, Health Education/Promotion, and the Profession.
Exit Standards: Students with the community health education/promotion concentration must maintain 2.0 or better GPA and obtain a C- or better in all HLTH upper division (3xxx and 4xxx) HLTH courses. The internship experience, which is typically completed during the senior year, provides students the opportunity for real-world hands-on experience with people and situations they may encounter as a beginning public health professional. Students who declare this concentration will be considered pre-public health majors until they have completed 45 credits, including HLTH 1100, with a 2.5 or better cumulative GPA (including transfer work). When students have met this requirement, they must apply for admission to upper division. This will move a student’s status from pre-public health to Public Health B.A.Sc.
