Press release from: Independence University

Salt Lake City, Utah, September 20, 2011 - Independence University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). Independence University works to maintain high academic standards and provide holistic, well-rounded, employment-oriented education by continuing its constant efforts to adapt to current employment demands by including programs that will help students flourish professionally.

Independence University’s Master of Science in Health Services-Health Promotion program has been launched in response to the rising need for qualified healthcare professionals. The past few years have seen tremendous advances in science and medicine, as well as an increasing public awareness of health issues. This, plus other factors such as a growing elderly population, an age bracket that increasingly needs medical attention, the impending retirement of current healthcare professionals, and stringencies in immigration laws due to which there are fewer international healthcare applicants, mean that the healthcare industry is likely to generate many jobs over the coming decade.

The Masters of Science in Health Services-Health Promotion program encompasses key areas such as research evaluation methods, public health, nutrition, health psychology, addiction counseling, healthcare biostatistics, health promotion program development, and more. The program is designed to equip degree holders to make significant contributions to society by spreading awareness about potential health risks and educating communities about preventive and diagnostic approaches towards disease prevention, and through research and compilation of vital public health data and statistics. On successful completion of this degree, students will have the credentials, knowledge, and expertise to pursue opportunities as health educators, community health specialists, public health promotion specialists, and other positions.

The duration of the degree is 18 months, but could be completed in as few as 12 months. Admission criteria include a high school diploma or equivalent GED® credential, and valid proof of a bachelor’s degree.
