Offered through Western Michigan University's Department of Human Performance and Health Education, the health education (school emphasis) minor is especially appropriate for those specializing in middle/junior high school education, in special education, and in secondary education with majors in such areas as biology, physical education, English, math, and family and consumer sciences. Candidates must pass subject area tests of competence administered by the Michigan Department of Education prior to certification by that office. School health minors are expected to have valid first aid and CPR certificates prior to teaching. Students completing requirements are eligible for certification to teach health education in grades 6-12 in Michigan.
