The Graduate Program in Health Studies at the University of Alabama is committed to providing a high quality, student-oriented program to students with the skills to design, implement and evaluate health education and health promotion programs. The graduate programs are theory-driven and are based on related research findings.
Employment of health educators is expected to grow by 26%, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will result from the rising cost of health care and the increased recognition of the need for qualified health educators.
At the College of Human Environmental Sciences, our students are first and foremost. We are committed to the success of all of our students.
The College offers ten undergraduate majors that help students reach their professional goals. The CHES Office of Student Services, located in 101 Doster Hall, is committed to helping students have a successful and rewarding college experience. Please let us know how we can help.

The Alabama Articulation and General Studies Committee (AGSC) was created in an effort to improve and monitor the transfer of course work between public institutions in the state. If you are considering a transfer, use the approved transfer guide:
The College of Human Environmental Sciences embraces the web’s ability to connect CHES with our students, faculty and staff, alumni, supporters, and prospective students. Part of that initiative is to offer new ways for our audience to interact with us on the web via the use of the most popular social networking tools on the web, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, Flickr & iTunes U.
Now you can get the latest information, connect with CHES and with other students, alumni and staff, interact with great streaming video content, and more. Add CHES to your social networking tools and help create a community of CHES supporters.
The College of Human Environmental Sciences has three instructional computer labs and one open computer lab, which provide supervised environments where students may gain knowledge and experience in computer applications. The labs also supply CHES faculty with state of the art computer facilities and training to aid teaching and research activities.
Instructional Computer Labs include:
203 Child Development Resources 115 East Annex 310 Doster Hall
The labs are monitored by student lab assistants to help students and faculty with troubleshooting general software and general hardware problems. The student lab assistants will not do computer projects for other students. All students are expected to do their own work and learn how to use the various software programs on their own.
