Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) has announced that BestColleges.com recently named its Master of Science in Health Promotion program Best Online Master’s in Health Education.
MUIH ranks No. 1 on the list of top online master’s in health education programs in the United States based on criteria including academic quality, affordability and online programming. The university is noted for its emphasis on developing a “scholarly online community where students learn valuable skills that prepare them for careers as compassionate healers.”
“I’m proud of the fact that we have a truly unique curriculum within our program,” said Claudia Joy Wingo, director of MUIH’s health promotion program. “We give our students the platform to explore both conventional and integrative health from an evidence-based perspective, and believe that they can become change agents for population health in both the community and workplace.”
Population health is an emerging field that considers and addresses both health improvements and the elimination of disparities. MUIH’s Master of Science in Health Promotion features distinctive integrative health-based coursework focusing on practices such as mind-body medicine, physical activity, functional nutrition, health behavior change and health maintenance. The program offers two concentrations: community health education and workplace wellness, and covers the education competencies required for graduates to pass the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) exam through the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing.
