We offer extended plans of study of up to 5 years. Applied practice experience and integrative learning experiences are a key part of the curriculum. You’ll engage with Wingate University community partners including health departments, public schools, nonprofit organizations, healthcare institutions and more. Inter-professional experiences will help prepare you to work in settings and sectors such as child welfare, education, healthcare and law enforcement. You will also be eligible to sit for the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam upon successful graduation.
