The public health and health education programs at Northern Illinois University offer several options at the undergraduate and graduate level for students interested in teaching health education in Illinois public schools.
Admissions are currently suspended for the Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) and Master of Science in Teaching (M.S.T.) in Health Education.
Employment of health educators is expected to grow by 21 percent, which is faster than the average for all occupations through 2022. Growth will result from the rising cost of healthcare.
