Certificate Programs

The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health is committed to serving the public health educational needs of working professionals in the State of Arizona and beyond. In addition to offering curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels, we offer four graduate certificate programs. Designed for working  professionals and/or those exploring the field of public health, the certificate programs provide skill enhancement for both domestic and international participants who have limited time to pursue a campus-based full graduate degree program.

Graduate Certificate in Public Health

The Graduate Certificate in Public Health is a distance-learning program that offers working professionals a flexible and convenient option for advancing their public health training. The certificate is affiliated with the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree and consists of the five core courses that are required of all MPH graduates.

Clinical & Translational Research Graduate Certificate

The Clinical & Translational Research Graduate Certificate prepares interprofessional scientists for the complexities of clinical and translational research through high-quality didactic instruction, and mentored collaborative research experiences.

Graduate Certificate in Global Health & Development

The Graduate Certificate in Global Health & Development is a distance-learning program that provides participants the foundation knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively in global health practice, whether at home in a diverse setting, along the border in a bi-cultural environment, or abroad where populations are under-resourced and where health systems are constrained.
