The Graduate Certificate in Global Health, offered by the Global Health Institute, is designed to equip graduate students with the basic skills necessary to function effectively in global health practice. Recognizing the critical role of multi-disciplinary education in global health, electives and internships will be expected by student involvement with various other colleges and schools of the university.

Objectives of the program include: increase students’ understanding of the global character of health problems, demonstrate the need for a multi-disciplinary approach to solving global health problems, develop skills that enable efforts to address global health problems and develop knowledge that will assist in advocacy for the solution of global health problems.
