The COVID Pandemic has resulted in many professionals being challenged in how they provide service and or continue in their current work-related career paths. The CHED program is open and willing to work with any professionals who might be considering a new professional re-entry or transition from their current career field. Our CHED program will work with you and welcomes any professionals who might be interested in shifting their career focus to Community Health Education. Never have careers in community and public health been so vitally important. We welcome you in join us in working and partnering to keep our communities healthy.
We welcome your interest in the Community Health Education Degree (CHED) programs in the College of Education & Human Sciences at the University of New Mexico.
The mission of the Community Health Education Program at the University of New Mexico is to develop and promote sustainable public health solutions for populations in New Mexico and beyond, through the professional preparation of health education specialists, collaboration with communities and organizations, research/evaluation, and advocacy.

We offer a fully online Bachelor of Science (B.S.), a fully online minor, and a Master of Science (M.S.) in Community Health Education. Our online B.S. CHED degree offers all courses in 8 weeks. All degree programs emphasize a high-level academic program of studies (POS).
Students of both undergraduate and graduate programs gain proficiency in working with urban and rural communities and develop comprehensive skill-sets.
The non-teaching undergraduate minor in Community Health Education is offered to students majoring in all disciplines except Health Education, and will complement majors of study in, but not limited to, nutrition, exercise science, and other health related fields.
Students pursuing this minor should plan to enroll in the required courses during the fall and spring semesters since undergraduate courses in health education are seldom offered during the summer sessions. Students should contact an advisor at the Center for Student Success in Travelstead Hall for more information and visit: https://catalog.unm.edu/catalogs/2021-2022/colleges/education-human-sciences/health-education/undergraduate-program.html.
