    DESCRIPTION
    This certificate program aims at serving the following groups: 1) students who are undecided about a specific concentration area in the College of Public Health; 2) students who are only interested in completing a few courses, not an MPH; 3) physicians or nurses who want to explore public health; 4) public health professionals who want additional graduate-level credentials.

    This Public Health Generalist certificate is an attempt to facilitate and encourage formal training not only for our public health workforce, but also for other professionals interested in the future of our profession. Indeed, this certificate would consist of only the existing five core courses, representing the five essential core areas of public health as well as our five academic departments. Once obtained, this certificate would allow the individual to continue in a chosen track if departmental criteria for admission are met, while receiving up to 12 hours of credit toward a graduate degree for the core courses completed and passed. This certificate program would help students gain an overview of the core disciplines and allow them to explore and discover some exciting career paths.
