Health Promotion

Health promotion is creating and implementing social and physical environments that enable individuals and communities, not only to prevent disease and to have access to health care, but also to improve their quality of life, and increase quantity of life.

Health promoters and educators are in high demand in the 21st century. The heavy burden of lifestyle-related diseases or chronic diseases can be overcome only if health care providers work together with health educators and promoters. The MPH with an emphasis in health promotion is committed to preparing those agents of change.

In addition to the professional competencies of an MPH graduate, those in the area of Health Promotion will have skills to do the following:

  1. Analyze current global health issues and the interface between globalization processes and their impact on the health and welfare of disadvantaged populations.
  2. Address adolescent and school health issues.

Admission Requirements

  1. A baccalaureate degree or its equivalent with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or better (four-point scale). Students with an undergraduate GPA of less than 3.00 may be admitted on scholastic probation. Their admission status will be reevaluated after completion of 12 semester hours of coursework.

  2. Proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking the English language, which is the medium of instruction at AIIAS (see p. 19).


The unique prerequisite for the MPH with emphasis in Health Promotion is to have undergraduate studies in Human Anatomy and Physiology (3 semester hours). It is possible to be accepted into the program provisionally if the student does not meet this prerequisite. In such a case, the student agrees to complete it before 50% of coursework has been completed.
