The CASPH is a 5 course (15-credit hour) program of study. The Certificate Program is organized to offer a continuous integrated core curriculum centered around the public health competencies. The curriculum has been designed to reflect the interrelationship between public health practice and research and designed to train current and future practitioners and researchers in the core public health functions. The abbreviated training allows interested students, who are either unable to complete a master degree, yet interested in augmenting on-the-job training or supplementing an advanced degree with core public health principles and practices, the opportunity to acquire the necessary training to manage public health problems.
All five (5) of the required courses are existing core Master of Public Health (MPH) courses required for degree seeking students.
The certificate is designed for part-time study to accommodate the working professional. The certificate can be completed within a three semester (Fall, Spring, Summer) block with admission during the fall semester. All requirements for the certificate program must be completed within a period of five years from entry into the program.
