Health Education Minor Program

The health education minor, when combined with a secondary teaching major, allows candidates to teach health classes to grades 7-12. A health minor can make candidates more marketable as they apply for secondary education teaching positions and assist them in teaching the whole child and optimizing learning in all areas.

Health Education Minor Course Requirements:

PED 157, 159, 267, 312, 313; HPS 206; BIO 101 or 103; BIO 207 or PED 207; EDU 295, 310; EXS 305,336; and ATH 317.

Even as one of the most affordable private universities in the nation, the University of Mary does offer a variety of scholarships. In fact, 99% of main campus undergraduate students receive some form of scholarship! 

Some scholarships are available for specific academic programs, such as nursing, while other scholarships are available for certain student populations, such as military and veteran students

We strongly encourage you to contact your personal admissions representative to discover all of the options that might be available to you. In many cases, a program specific scholarship is just one component of a complete financial aid package. 

Our admissions professionals will work together with our Office of Financial Assistance to ensure that you get the best financial aid package possible to finance your education. 

Acceptance at the University of Mary does not automatically qualify you to pursue a program in one of the academic programs of study. Application requirements are specific to each major or academic program.

We recommend consulting your advisor for details. Applications are reviewed by the faculty members of the program. You will be notified that you have been admitted, admitted provisionally, or denied admission to the program.
