Certificates

Strengthen skills and increase career potential with any of our nine certificate programs. Most degree-seeking students can earn a certificate in tandem with their primary degree without adding extra time to their program. Active public health professionals are also encouraged to apply as a non-degree student. This path would focus on a stand alone, 15-credit graduate certificate.
