Certificate – Graduate Certificate in Global Health


Summary of the Changes:
The new program will be a Graduate Certificate Program in Global Health which requires 12 graduate credits. It was developed over the past year with a strong interdisciplinary faculty group who designed the curriculum 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 health students an opportunity to do at least one international study abroad course, two required graduate courses in global health, with one which includes 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. The development of the certificate program was supported by a grant from Student Affairs to promote more study abroad opportunities at UNF.
