Minor in Health Teaching
The minor in Health Teaching provides students intending to go into teaching or health promotion with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of health and their teaching skills in personal wellness and health-related fields. Students will learn about health from personal, public, community, and global perspectives, drawing from interdisciplinary studies in physical education, physiology, nutrition, exercise science, sociology, psychology, women’s studies, child and family studies, agriculture and sustainability, and social justice studies, as well as education.
Requirements for the MinorThe minor in Health Teaching requires a minimum of six (6) course credits, as follows:
Required Core Courses
HLT 215, 315, and CFS 221
Required Distribution Courses
Two courses chosen from HLT 111, 210 (also APS), 224, 236 (also WGS), and PSY 215
Required additional HLT Course
One (1) additional course from the list above or another HLT course approved by the program to meet this requirement (i.e., a summer travel course or a health-related internship); selection of this course must be approved by the Health Teaching minor advisor.
Admission to the Minor
An interview with members of the Health faculty in the Program, as well as a program recommendation, are required for admission to the Health minor.
Proficiency Requirements for Retention in and Completion of the Minor
A grade of C (2.0 GPA) or higher in each required Health Teaching minor course, as well as in each prerequisite and collateral course, is required for continuation in the minor. Students not receiving a grade of C or higher may repeat that particular course to raise the grade while remaining in the minor program. In addition to the course GPA requirement, certification in first aid, including adult, child, and infant cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with Automated External Defibrillator (AED) must be completed by the first term of the senior year. This may be met by taking HLT 109 or through successful completion of an outside course with certification.
Additional considerations for the Health Studies Minor
Designated Summer One or Summer Two courses may be used for the Health Teaching Minor.
