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.
This program typically leads to licensure/certification and was designed to meet such qualifications for the state of Utah. Students who are or may be planning to pursue licensure/certification in any other U.S. state or territory may need to meet additional education requirements. This is not a reflection of SUU’s accreditation or quality, as each state and territory regulates their own education requirements for occupational licensure.
Students enrolled in a teacher preparation program may potentially be able to use a Utah educator license to obtain licensure through reciprocity. Additional information may be found through the Department of Teacher Education’s reciprocity table.
An overview of all of SUU’s programs that lead to licensure/certification and the programs’ current determination statuses may be found at www.suu.edu/provost/licensure.html.
