Graduate Core Public Health Certificate
The Graduate Core Public Health Certificate is a 15-credit hour program designed to give students a strong foundation of knowledge in the five core areas of public health: biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental health, health services administration, and social and behavioral sciences. The fundamental knowledge and skills learned in these core courses will equip students to analyze and respond to emerging public health issues at the institution, community, and societal levels. Some professionals augment their credentials and job prospects through a public health Certificate.
