The 12 credit Graduate Certificate Program in Global Health was
developed and designed to meet the needs for global health competencies set
forth by several of the BCH accrediting bodies. Global health is an
interdisciplinary field that relies on a broad knowledge base to create
innovative solutions to challenging health problems in resource poor settings.
This program will provide graduate students an opportunity to do at least one
international study abroad course, two required graduate courses in global
health (one of those requires working with a refugee population in North
Florida), and one elective course which may be an additional study abroad or a
discipline specific course related to international or global health issues.
Understanding issues related to global health is central to preparation for
working on emerging global issues such as sustainability of food and water
resources, disease transmission and management, epidemics, and health care
delivery in compromised settings.
Students who complete the UNF Graduate Certificate in Global Health will
