Major Requirements


The Certificate is a 12-credit program open to mid-career professionals who require a policy background to operate effectively in the dynamic health care sector. The certificate is earned after completion of two required graduate courses (6 credits) in health policy and two electives (6 credits) selected from approved courses offered by participating colleges and schools within the University in such areas as health and social policy, health law, demography, management, and economics.
