  4. At least 30 semester credits must be earned through UMD, and 15 of the last 30 degree credits earned immediately before graduation must be awarded by UMD.
  5. Students must complete at least half of their courses at the 3xxx-level and higher at UMD. Study-abroad credits earned through courses taught by UM faculty and at institutions with which UMD has international exchange programs may be used to fulfill this requirement.
  6. If a minor is required, students must take at least three upper division credits in their minor field from UMD.
  7. For certificate programs, at least 3 upper-division credits that satisfy requirements for the certificate must be taken through UMD. If the program does not require upper division credits students must take at least one course from the certificate program from UMD.
  8. The minimum cumulative UM GPA required for graduation will be 2.00 and will include only University of Minnesota coursework. A minimum UM GPA of 2.00 is required in each UMD undergraduate major and minor. No academic unit may impose higher grade point standards to graduate.
  9. Diploma, transcripts, and certification will be withheld until all financial obligations to the University have been met.
Program Requirements
1. Selection of either Community Health or School Health concentration/subplan. 2. Completion of all courses specific for the major, including the emphasis, with a minimum 2.00 GPA (including transfer work). Students with school health education concentration must make no grade lower than C- in all courses required in the major. 3. Compliance with general regulations governing granting of degrees. Students are required to review their degree status in the CEHSP Advising & Academic Services Office early in their senior year. 4. Students majoring in public health education and promotion are expected to maintain a 2.00 GPA overall and in the major. They must demonstrate acceptable professional performance in their courses and field experience. 5. Students are expected to: a) make satisfactory academic progress each semester; b) demonstrate acceptable professional performance in applied learning settings (e.g. laboratory, field experience, clinical experiences); and c) obtain an approved background check before being placed in clinical, field, intern, or student teaching experience.
Program Sub-plans
Students are required to complete one of the following sub-plans.
Community Health
This concentration addresses the seven responsibilities for health education specialist (NCHEC 2010): assess needs, assets/capacity for health education; plan health education; implement health education; conduct evaluation and research related to health education; administer and manage health education; serve as a health education resource person; communicate and advocate for health and health education; students completing this concentration are prepared to take the national Certified Health Education Specialist exam. Exit Standards: Community Health concentration students must maintain 2.0 or better GPA and pass all required courses for the major. The internship experience introduces undergraduate students to the people and situations they may encounter as a beginning health education professional; students apply classroom theories and techniques and are given responsibilities that help them assess their individual strengths and weaknesses in order to ascertain the most appropriate and desirable entry-level position(s) and permits the prospective health education specialist the opportunity to associate with experienced professionals. The resulting dialogue should enable the future health education specialists to study firsthand the needs and trends of the field. The internship generally is completed during the senior year after completion of most, if not all, required classwork. The internship may be taken full or part-time over one or more semesters for 9 credits or more.
Students who declare this concentration will be considered pre-majors until they have completed 30 credits, including HLTH 1100 with a 2.5 or better cumulative GPA (including transfer work). When students have met this requirement, they must request admission to upper division/degree candidacy.
