Application for Admission

The Graduate Certificate Program in Global Health is designed to advance the knowledge and capabilities of individuals who hold a baccalaureate degree and have an interest in understanding health issues that transcend national boundaries. Learning activities focus on human diversity, and are designed to prepare students to better serve the health needs of people at home and abroad. Required and elective course material will address the biological, social, cultural, and environmental determinants of health in sub populations in the United States, such as immigrants, refugees and other minorities. At the global level, students will study diseases and conditions that impact people in lower and middle-income countries, the health systems that serve them, and the available resources for improving their health and wellbeing.    

Certificate programs are not eligible for financial aid or scholarship funding.
