Global Health Certificate

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

This program educates students about current health patterns and transitions occurring globally, as well as about the role of dynamic global environmental, political, economic, health care, and social changes to these patterns.

Coursework consists of 7 credits of core courses and 8 credits of additional coursework aligned with the individual student’s specific area of interest and intended skillset. Students must complete a field experience, which can be combined with the required practicum for the degree program provided the experience is relevant to global health. Students have the opportunity to complete this global health practicum in the form of local opportunities or in an international setting.

Required Courses

The certificate core courses cannot overlap with any other departmental requirement.  Overlap is permitted for the remaining required courses and these may also fulfill departmental requirements.
