Graduate Certificate Programs allow a student to take courses in a specific topical area without being admitted to a degree program. Certificates range from 12 to 18 credits to complete, depending on the one selected. By comparison, the MPH requires a minimum of 42 credits.

Open to students who have completed a Bachelor degree, Graduate Certificate Programs are designed to meet your continuing professional education needs. Credits taken can apply, if appropriate, to a Masters or PhD degree in Public Health or related disciplines should the student later be admitted to a graduate degree program. For more information on certificates, see the Innovative Education website.

Certificate Application: To apply to a certificate, visit the Graduate Certificate Application page.

Certificate Completion: To complete the certificate, after completing all coursework students must submit the Graduate Certificate Completion Form.  Certificate completion forms must be submitted prior to graduating if a student is degree seeking.

NOTE about courses:  All graduate certificate students may apply one graduate course to two graduate certificates. See USF Catalog Graduate Certificate section for all policy details.
