The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Global Health is a 19-credit hour graduate program providing students applied skills in global health policy and practice. This program emphasizes the integration of social and behavioral determinants of health combined with practice and evidence-based strategies for developing, implementing, and evaluating programs and policies in global settings. The CAS in Global Health can be offered in combination with any graduate degree, or pursued as a stand-alone Certificate. It is particularly useful in providing students in technical or terminal degrees with global health credentials to help them pursue their careers in a global setting. A practicum concluding the program provides students direct field experience.
Applicants must have earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in undergraduate coursework.
