Health Education deals with various aspects of human behavior in order to promote healthy behaviors. To develop the competencies necessary to be an effective health educator, students need a foundation built on principles derived from behavior, biomedical and social sciences, and education. Common to all health education professionals, regardless of the setting in which they practice, is the ability to apply teaching and learning principles to health/illness issues. The Health Education area of study at Howard Community College offers the student the basis for transfer to school, community, and general health education programs.
