Program Overview

Lenoir Community College offers student teachers the opportunity to enhance their teaching abilities with the concentration in Health Education. The Associate of Arts degree program allows students to gain the foundational understanding of teaching topics, as well as coursework focused on introducing students to the essential topics of health. The concentration of providing health care education includes the primary body of knowledge of a Liberal Arts degree, which covers subjects of fine arts, the natural and social sciences, mathematics, literature, and humanities. Students should be able to combine the coursework when applying the learned processes to classroom and physical education facilities.

Students may use the Associate of Arts degree for entry-level positions in elementary, secondary or post-secondary, special needs, technology or counseling and administrative roles. Health Education is becoming a bigger focus within elementary school settings, because of the rise of childhood diabetes, obesity, and many other health concerns related to lack of physical activity and poor choices in nutrition.

Teachers are responsible for proper the pedagogy of acceptable beliefs and customs, as well as being a source of information, advice and wisdom. The influential role of becoming a licensed and certified teacher should facilitate an associate program student to acquire higher levels of degree credentials to satisfy many other options of teaching in public, private and homeschool settings. Potential graduates must complete the required 65 semester credit hours, maintain a 2.0 GPA and satisfy final projects to earn the Associate of Arts degree designation. Certain students may use the earned degree as transfer to accepting North Carolina State colleges and universities to continue their studies at a bachelor level.
