Students currently enrolled in a MPH, MSPH, MPH&TM, or MHA degree may enroll in a graduate certificate program in addition to their degree. The certificate adds a second area of specialization to the professional master’s degree. Graduate certificates require approximately 15 credits. Open electives in degree programs may be applied to the certificates; however, no course may count toward both the degree concentration and the certificate. Most certificates will require additional credits above the 42-45 for the master’s degree.
Steps to Enroll in a Graduate Certificate
A student must officially withdraw from the certificate program if s/he decides not to complete the extra credits. Students may withdraw from the certificate at any time by written notification to the Office of Student Services.
