This is an interdepartmental 15-credit hour program of graduate study covering the required core content taught within UNC’s MPH programs: epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy and management, environmental health, and health behavior. All courses are taught completely online. No travel to the UNC-Chapel Hill campus is required. Online certificates are available to any interested student NOT currently enrolled at UNC-Chapel Hill. After viewing the GPS overview, see our Certificate in Core Public Health Concepts partner page for additional information.
Interested students are welcome to attend our School-wide open house.
The UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health strives to integrate global content and approaches across the School’s courses, programs and degrees. We believe that every student should emerge from our School with an understanding of global health issues. Some courses are focused largely on global issues, others are designed so that global and local issues are intertwined and some still are evolving. Learn more about these options.
NOTE: Certificate students don’t have opportunity for global study outside courses comprising program.
