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. Requirements include an official transcript, personal statement and 2 letters of recommendation (one of which must be an academic references; the other may be a professional reference).
Eligibility requirement: To be awarded a CAS, a student must be matriculated in the certificate program for at least one semester. Matriculation may not be backdated.
Part-time study is acceptable; however, time to degree completion depends on available course offerings and number of courses enrolled. Time limit to degree completion is 7 years.
Students only enrolled in a CAS program are not eligible for department financial aid. Additional information regarding loan availability for CAS programs can be found at Graduate Student Aid
