The University of Florida’s Certificate of Public Health is delivered through an entirely online format. UF offers this certificate through the College of Public Health & Health Professions, and under the Department of Distance Programs in Public Health & Health Professions. This program is intended for professionals who are working in health-related fields, or who are interested in working in this area and wish to gain graduate academic training in critical areas of public health.
This program’s distance learning delivery was implemented with health professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional certificate on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. Through this program, students may be able to build a foundation in public health, expand job opportunities, and possibly enhance a current degree program.
The Certificate of Public Health’s core curriculum consists of five graduate level courses, or 15 credit hours, taken over the course of three semesters. Some of the courses that students will take through this program span topics such as Environmental Concepts in Public Health, Statistical Methods for Health Sciences, Principles of Epidemiology, and Introduction to Public Health Administrative Systems. Additionally, all credits earned through the certificate program may possibly be applied towards the University of Florida’s online Master of Public Health degree.
