Graduate Certificate Programs

Graduate certificates give students an avenue to earn additional skills to supplement their degree concentration the MPH, MSPH, MPH&TM, or MHA degree programs. Graduate certificates are open to students currently enrolled in an SPHTM professional master’s degree program but are not available to online students unless they are in the New Orleans area.

Graduate certificates allow for a second area of study and have become a popular method for students to add value to their education. However, graduate certificates are not a degree program.

Forms to indicate your intention to add a certificate program to your academic studies are included on each of the certificate pages, along with instructions for completion.
