Health Education is a certifiable minor approved for secondary teaching licensure at SUU. This minor is intended to provide students with the necessary academic background and preparation to effectively teach health related courses in public and private schools.
All courses must be passed with a “C-” (1.7) or better to be counted in the minor.
HIV/AIDS Education class is needed for health teaching certification, but is only taught by the Utah State Office of Education after you have been hired to teach health.
The Department of Kinesiology and Outdoor Recreation strongly recommends that students complete the following courses as part of their General Education requirements, as they are prerequisites for required major courses. Students who do not complete these courses as part of General Education can potentially add additional credits and time to their degree.
