Graduate Certificate In Public Health
Interim Department Chair:
Penny Liberatos, PhD, Advisor
This 18-credit graduate level certificate is designed primarily for health professionals and medical students who are not currently interested in obtaining an MPH degree, but who nevertheless wish to pursue studies in public health. The certificate courses will facilitate an understanding of the basics of public health, prepare them to undertake research, and expose them to a more in-depth understanding of specific topics in public health (such as, health economics, law and health, environmental health or behavioral and social factors in public health) depending upon their own particular interest.
Earning the certificate involves a focused learning experience in public health. Certificate credits may be applied toward the MPH degree.
