About

With the focus of America’s health care system shifting to the prevention of illness and injury and the promotion of healthier lifestyles, a master’s degree in health education from Kaplan University may empower you to help others stay well and live healthier lives.

By successfully completing this program, you will learn to design, implement, and evaluate health programs. The responsibilities of a health educator include helping to solve community health issues by designing and implementing educational programs that promote healthy lifestyles and behaviors. The health educator collects and analyzes data to identify community needs as well as plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate health education programs that focus on individual and social health issues such as teen pregnancy, HIV prevention, and controlling the spread of infectious diseases. This may include grant writing, resource evaluations, referrals, social marketing and media, community organizing, developing training methods and materials, and publishing.

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

Academic Requirements

To apply to Kaplan University’s graduate programs, you must:

  • Submit an unofficial transcript indicating receipt of a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • By the last day of the first term, you must provide the University with an official copy of the transcript. If an official transcript is not submitted by this time, you will be withdrawn from the University, blocked from reentry, and your academic credentials will be withheld until such documentation is provided.
