Why you should study Health Education 

A degree brings with it various advantages that can help you in the course of your career. You develop soft skills and abilities such as scientific work, which are important for your professional development and which you could not acquire in an apprenticeship. You can only reach certain positions and thus salary levels with an academic degree. Lifelong learning is also becoming increasingly important for our society and a Bachelor's or a Master's degree simply ensures you better career and promotion opportunities and a successful future.  

Your IU Studies in Health Education 

In addition to pedagogical know-how, you can acquire subject didactic knowledge. You will also learn management basics and central methodological skills and strengthen your social skills.   

Our Bachelor's degree programme in Health Education includes two practice-oriented projects that are also part of the curriculum. In this way, you will be optimally prepared for your future tasks in the health sector. In the course of your studies, you can choose your individual focus and further deepen your knowledge in the areas of education, counselling, psychology and labour law. 

A look into the future: what you will do after graduation 

The only prerequisite for Health Education: you need to have completed training in a health profession. Then you can take your Health Education studies to the next level. For example, as a health educator, research assistant or health advisor in schools. You will gain all the competences for quality assurance and personnel development to teach in schools and educational institutions for health professions. There are many career paths in the health sector to pass on your acquired knowledge to people
