HHE5200 Research in Health Education A

Course Description

Whether for their own practice or for a mainstream organization, the health educator needs to be prepared to find, understand, and evaluate public health or medical articles written by experts in the field. They also need to know, through systematic evaluation, whether their programs are having an impact on the target population. This course helps develop these core health educator skills: research literature assessment, data interpretation, survey development, research design methods, population management, and program analysis. Students will gain essential hands-on experience with both quantitative and qualitative research methods. They will design a health study, conduct literature reviews and analysis, hold a focus group meeting in the community, and develop their own survey.
