Global Health

The Global Health certificate is a 12-credit graduate certificate in interdisciplinary global health offered through the Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and Policy (InCHIP) in partnership with Global Affairs.

The certificate recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of global health and offers students concentrated exposure to foundational concepts, opportunities to dive deeper into an area of interest, and exploration of interdisciplinary methodological concepts. The certificate program also recognizes that global health encompasses not only international contexts, but also local health, and more importantly how ‘local’ and ‘global’ health influence each other. No prior experience with, or knowledge of global health is required, but prior coursework in statistics, epidemiology and/or research methods may be helpful.

Requirements: Students are required to take CHIP 5100, plus three additional elective courses (three credits each) chosen from the courses listed below, as approved by the Global Health Graduate Certificate Committee. Students are allowed, but not required, to take one elective course in their home department and one course listed in the Foundational Courses category. The certificate requires completing all four courses while maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or higher in each required course.
