NYSED Program Code
The Advanced Certificate in Health Education is an 18-credit program that prepares educators to provide school health education instruction. Upon completion of the program the candidates are eligible to apply for New York State Department of Education (NYSED) Health Education certification. This program will be offered to students who already possess a Master’s degree and a New York State (NYS) initial or professional certification in any subject area. Therefore, this program offers an alternative route to eligibility for New York State Certification in Health Education without completing a separate Master’s degree in Health Education. Students will need possess prerequisite health content courses for admission.
