Graduate Certificate in Health Communication
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Program Details

The online Graduate Certificate in Health Communication allows you to choose from a large number of health communication courses and customize studies to fit your career goals. It is ideal for health professionals who are interested in health communication and already have a master’s degree, as well as those who may not feel ready to commit to a two-year degree program, but would like to take classes to apply to a degree later. 

The program is also ideal for those who would like to focus on one specific area of health communication (interpersonal, organizational, or social/mediated health communication) but do not need or want to take classes in the other areas.
