Public Health Sciences offers five new Advanced Certificates

The Department of Public Health Sciences is now offering five Advanced Certificate programs covering a range of public health issues.JimDolan

“These could be a good fit for working professionals who want to acquire these sort of skills to help them in their current job who don’t have the time or inclination to get a full degree,” said James G. Dolan, associate professor of Public Health Sciences. “These smaller-sized versions of our degree programs that are easier, more accessible, and perhaps more appropriate for a lot of people.”

Though certificate applications are closed for this fall, those wanting to get a jump can still take non-matriculated classes and then enroll in Spring 2016, which will allow them to apply the credits retroactively. The five certificates:

Analytic epidemiology (12 credits)

-Provides a practical understanding of quantitative research methods through a selection of epidemiology courses.

Clinical research methods (12 credits)

-Designed to give a broad overview of both quantitative and qualitative research.

Trial-based clinical research (12 credits)

-Designed for those who want to learn more about conducting controlled trials.

Health services research (12 credits)

-Designed for those looking to navigate the changing health care landscape.

Public health (15 credits)

-A less intensive version of the Master’s in Public Health; designed for people who are interested in sitting for the American Board of Public Health certification exam.
