HLTH 5412 - Health Education and Communication Strategies♦


(5 cr.)
Effective communication plays a vital role in the diffusion of a health behavior or innovation. Students in this course are introduced as health educators to a wide range of health communication strategies. Assignments will allow students to apply and evaluate the use of health education delivery methods for various populations and practice settings (e.g., community, clinical, worksite, global, schools). Principles and theories of health communication and behavior change will be applied to a variety of health education case studies. Students will also demonstrate how to design and communicate culturally tailored health information to an audience of their choice. They will also explore the use of emerging technologies and social media in delivering and promoting health education.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an enrollment specialist [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
