Abstract: Multicultural competencies for the seven responsibility areas of health education were applied to evaluate the multicultural curriculum of a health education professional preparation program. Faculty, students' and practicum supervisors' perceptions were assessed, course content was evaluated, and students' multicultural sensitivity was measured. Competencies were addressed a t varying levels, and some courses ha d a greater multicultural focus. Students perceived that the multicultural portion of the curriculum could be enhanced by requiring a separate multicultural health education issues course, incorporating cultural sensitivity and competence into every health education course, and requiring varied multicultural field experiences. Students' high level of cultural sensitivity did not increase significantly during the program.
