The Community Health Advocacy and Education (CHAE) major studies the health and wellness of the community as a whole, and the various initiatives, program, and practices designed to improve its health. Rowan University’s CHAE program is focused on the areas of responsibility expressed by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC). The CHAE program engages students in the seven NCHEC areas of assessment, planning, implementation, research and evaluation, service and advocacy and the administration of public health and health education programming. The CHAE program prepares graduates for the Certified Health Education Specialist examination, for graduate and professional school programs as well as for various community and public health positions.
