Western Washington University

Description:

Western's Community Health program is recognized as one of the leading undergraduate programs in the Northwest. The major offers a curriculum for students interested in careers in health education and health promotion within one of five settings: community, school, worksite, college/university and/or medical/clinical. Western's program is designed to prepare students for the examination to become a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES). A CHES is an individual credentialed as a result of passing a national examination demonstrating competency based on criteria established by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc.

Graduates of Community Health work in a variety of settings: community health agencies, worksites (business and industry), hospital-based wellness programs, public health departments, environmental agencies, voluntary non-profit organizations, and schools, including colleges and universities. They work with people of all ages, from children to seniors. To address the many contributing factors that lead to a health problem, they work with policy makers and other helping professionals.
