Program of Study Guide

The program of study leading to the degree of Master of Science (M.S.) in Diabetes Education and Management is designed for clinically prepared individuals who wish to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the increased demand for comprehensive, evidence-based, safe, and effective diabetes care for the 25.8 million Americans who currently have diabetes and the estimated 44 million Americans expected to have the diagnosis of diabetes by 2034.  Thus, the program of study enables students to prepare, through the selection of courses in required areas and through elective course work, for advanced clinical practice in diabetes education and management in a variety of health care settings.  The M.S. degree may serve to prepare qualified students to go on for more advanced professional study in health education or other health-related fields.  Completion of the degree program prepares graduates for certification as a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) through the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators (NCBDE) or as a Board-Certified Advanced Diabetes Manager (BC-ADM) through the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
