Graduate Certificate in Public Health Practice
About the Graduate Certificate in Public Health Practice
The Graduate Certificate in Public Health Practice is designed to prepare students who complete the program to apply fundamental public health skills in their professional fields. Public health training in the five core public health disciplines - Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Social and Behavioral Health, and Health Policy & Health Management - may complement students' current job skills, or provide students with new professional public health knowledge and career opportunities.
Courses are offered in an online/on-campus hybrid format: most coursework occurs online, complemented with two to three on-campus sessions. Students can take as few as one class a semester and complete the program within two years. Students who can make a larger academic and time commitment may take two classes per semester and finish the certificate in a year (fall-spring-summer semesters). Want to know more?
