Admission Criteria and Procedures for MSEd and Alternate MSEd (Health Education) Degree Requirements.

All applicants for the Master of Science in Education (Health Education) programs must have completed a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. All applicants will be evaluated individually to determine the course requirements for their program. Academic standards for acceptance into the program include the following:

  1. Preference is given to applicants with an undergraduate degree grade point average (GPA) over 3.0; (An applicant with an undergraduate GPA of less than 3.0 may present his/her written rationale for acceptance in the application materials.)
  2. A list of three (3) professional references available to be contacted. The list of references should include name, professional title, address, phone, e-mail. References should be able to discuss the applicant's ability to do graduate level work, as well as:
    • competence in professional work performance;
    • academic performance in college;
    • ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing; and
    • ability to relate effectively with colleagues, students, clients, superior and subordinate personnel, and the general public.
  3. Evidence of satisfactory performance (grade of "C" or better) in two semesters of Anatomy and Physiology (or equivalent) and one semester of Statistics taken at the undergraduate level.

No more than six credits taken before matriculation will be applied to a graduate student's master's degree program.
