Health Promotion & Management
Health Promotion is defined by the World Health Organization as “the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behavior towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions” (WHO, 2018). It focuses on the population as a whole in the context of their everyday lives through education-driven health programs. Professionals in this career love helping people create healthy lives that will impact the public health as a whole through community, institutional, and individual programs. Health promotion is important because it reduces the cost of health related issues for families, their employers, and the nation as a whole. Additionally, it improves the health status of communities at large. Through prevention, quality of life is often improved.
Bellevue College offers a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Health Promotion Management. This evening program offers flexibility for working professionals who are already working in the public health and wellness fields as well as those who desire to enter the field. This unique program offers a cohort style career-oriented education where meaningful connections can be made with fellow students and faculty that will last a lifetime! The curriculum is thoughtfully designed to provide knowledge of chronic disease, health promotion, nutrition, exercise science, environmental health, stress management and wellness in the development of effective health promotion programming.
