TWU Health Studies



TWU Department of Health Studies degrees prepare students to direct, create, or evaluate health education programs that promote wellness and prevent disease. The curriculum centers around the Areas of Responsibility outlined by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) and enables graduates of our program to take the CHES national certification exam and become a Certified Health Education Specialist. Many employers in the field of health promotion/health education require this certification.

Most health educators work in medical care settings, colleges and universities, schools, public health departments, nonprofit organizations, and private business.
We offer a B.S., B.A.S., M.S., dual M.S./M.L.S., and Ph.D. in Health Studies.

The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) is a professional association for health education professionals and students. This video from their organization gives an idea of the different ways that health educators can affect people's lives.

Student Success Story
The student success story is one of my own personal life experiences. I have chosen to refer to this journey in my life as a “student success story” because it all began and continues when I have held the status of being a college student. The success that is presented isn’t due to the accolades or pats on the back I have received, it’s about the obstacles I have overcome while striving to accomplish personal, physical and spiritual goals. My success began many years ago, but my true vision of success was when I reflected back on the path that I am currently taking. I started the fall semester juggling a full time job as an intern in project management, which I knew nothing about , in addition to caring for my nine years old niece with behavioral issues who came to live with me due to lack of educational and academic success. I was living on my own for the very first time paying bills, raising a child and a puppy all while taking thirteen hours of college courses. This became the biggest tasks of my life and managing it all on my own physically and financially. The struggle was very present, but taking things day by day became my very best friend. My job as an intern held its own pressure because I was working with executives, chiefs and those who held high ranking positions and I had to perform in a manner that would leave a lasting impression on the asset that I could truly be to the organization. Well to make a very long story short…they offered me a job in project management, my niece is becoming more successful in school, I’m learning to manage my life more effectively, I made the Dean’s List that semester and how I pulled that off had nothing to do with me. God truly blessed me! So, this student’s success story is one that truly lives on and will hold many more successes to come, but the most important part to never forget is to cherish the moments that you thought you couldn’t make it through, then give thanks where their due!
