Brooks College of Health (Graduate) – (Health Administration and Public Health):

New Courses, Courses Changes, & Programs of Study (6 packages)

12/06/18: Passed

12/11/18: Approved

Log Number: 201808-99

Health Administration – Graduate


 Add a new non-degree program

Certificate - Global Health Administration Certificate


 Summary of the changes:

This request is to establish a Global Health Administration Certificate to be used in place of the current Global Health Certificate for international students who complete a 4 course (12 credit hour) certificate program offered by the department of Health administration. Establishing a separate certificate would reduce the confusion by eliminating the course listings which are only available to Health administration students and international students admitted to the Certificate program. The Global Health Certificate is currently being updated to reflect removal of these four courses. (APC Log #2018-104)

As part of this new certificate we request addition of a new course, HSA6XXX International Health Systems (3 credits) which will replace HSA6908 Directed Independent Study (3 Credits). Total credits required for the certificate remain unchanged at 12 credits.
