The School of Education, Teaching, and Health offers programs that prepare teachers, educational leaders and managers, education specialists, health promotion specialists, and researchers for careers in schools, colleges and universities, government agencies, and professional organizations. These programs provide candidates with opportunities to collaborate with professionals in public schools, educational organizations, and federal agencies through internships, practice, and research. Training in international education prepares graduates for careers in international organizations, nongovernmental organizations, international schools, and government agencies. In January 2006, the Department of Health and Fitness merged into the School of Education. The fields of study within both programs have powerful synergies, and both departments agreed, after examination and careful study, to join together to create the School of Education, Teaching, and Health (SETH).
