The School Health (SCH) option provides a background in the basic health sciences and pedagogy. This option prepares educators to plan, implement and evaluate health education in a variety of settings with an emphasis on teaching health in school settings. Graduates have the ability to acquire K-12 teacher certification credentials enabling them to teach in public or private schools. This option certifies students to teach health only, although students are encouraged to become certified in a second teaching field through the use of core curriculum and support field electives. Due to the high number of science courses required in the degree, science is most commonly selected for support field electives.
The increased demand for science teachers makes this a highly marketable choice. Students frequently take support field electives that also serve as course pre-requisites for professional schools such as nursing, physician assistant, physical therapist or other medical fields of study.
