What can you do with that???
As some of you might know, I am FINALLY graduating this fall with a Bachelor's Degree in Community Health. I often get asked, what is that and what can you do with that? I love health and all of the different aspects of health. I love mental health, physical health, spiritual health, environmental and I love to learn about all of it. The major is really broad and does not specialize in a specific area, but covers a lot of different areas. I can do so many different things with this major.
"Graduates with a bachelor degree in Community Health can pursue a variety of career positions. Job titles include Health Education Specialist, Health Promotion Specialist, Health Program Evaluator, Health Services Administrators, etc. Graduates are qualified to work in governmental health agencies and in the private-sector in settings such as public health departments, health maintenance organizations, hospitals, clinics, and specialized health agencies such as the American Heart Association. An emphasis in School Health Education will prepare individuals to teach health in junior and senior high schools. The undergraduate major can additionally lead to advanced degrees in health education, hospital administration, public health administration, medicine and other health-related professions."
So, there you have it. That's what I do on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I am a dragging student and I can't wait to be done, but I also LOVE learning about the forever changing life of health.
When I graduate, I would love not to work, but if I do, I would love to teach health to high school students. My dream would be to be involved with the implementation of a much better sex-education program for Utah schools.
I can't wait to graduate! Counting down the days.......
