Questions about the Health Education concentrations in Community Health or Human Services, and questions about an Individually Designed Minor (IDM) may be addressed to a Health Education faculty member.
1. Initially, students should take time to look over the different graduate programs offered in Health Education as well as the information about applying to the UAB Graduate School.
2. At any time, prospective students can contact the Department of Human Studies, 205.934.2446 or send a message, for questions about any of our programs.
3. If a student wants to take a few hours to see if a particular Health Education program “fits”, they must fill out a non-degree graduate student application form from the UAB Graduate School. A student can take up to 12 hours as non-degree seeking student. These courses must come from the following list: HE 502, HE 508, HE 523 QL, HE 601, HE 610, or HE 691 QL.
4. Once a student decides to enroll in our Health Education program, an application for regular admission to the Graduate School should be completed. This application also requires 3 references, 2 official transcripts, and test scores for either the GRE or MAT. Doctoral program applications require a GRE score. The graduate school will send the application to the Chair of the Department of Human Studies and an advisor will be appointed. The student should then make an appointment up with their advisor to plan courses for graduation.
