WHY GET A GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN PUBLIC HEALTH?
Public health is a fast-growing field that works toward keeping our communities healthier and safer. A Public Health Certificate (PHC) is an excellent opportunity to advance your career in healthcare or public health without having to commit to an entire degree program. The required courses can be completed in two semesters, or you have up to three years to complete the certificate. Earning your certificate will advance your knowledge of public health within communities, and populations, as a whole. If you are working in public or community health but lack formal training, or because you are completing a master’s degree in another field that intersects with public health, earning a public health certificate will enhance your credentials and be a perfect addition to your resume.
