Students may choose to complete the Global Health Certificate with three courses and a global health practicum (11 credits) or three courses without the practicum (9 credits). The 11 credits option is more appropriate for those pursuing a global health career because it includes a global health practicum. The Certificate Director can provide guidance regarding the most suitable path for the student to follow based on future career plans.
