On Campus Icon On Campus

The Health Education 7-12 Teaching Field Endorsement allows students to be qualified to teach health at the secondary level in the public or private sector. The endorsement requires 32 hours of specialized coursework. Because of the close partnerships with surrounding school districts, University of Nebraska at Kearney students have the opportunity to complete interactive experiences to practice teaching in a variety of health education settings beginning their freshman year. UNK believes in the value of hands-on learning and helps to guide students in these field experiences throughout their collegiate career to develop quality educators who make a difference in the lives of students.
