The Public Health Administration graduate certificate program is offered through the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University. This completely online graduate certificate curriculum is designed for students who are looking for additional study in public health administration.

Public health deals with issues such as controlling infectious disease, improving access to health care, and reducing violence, substance abuse, environmental hazards, and injury. By coupling this with the administration aspect, successful students will be competent planners and financial managers, and will be able to understand the public health structure, organization, society, laws and ethics, and financial aspects. Public health administrators can be employed by government agencies or not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions. The main goal of individuals who work in this field is to improve the wellbeing of a community and organize distribution of health information.
