About the Program

You're happy in your job educating people about how to improve their health, but you want to do more. Our Graduate Certificate in Health Education can help you build on your existing skills through advanced training.

This graduate certificate program, which is taught completely online, will enhance your current knowledge so you can better serve your community. How? We aligned our curriculum with the seven areas of responsibility outlined by the National Commission of Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC). That is, we'll teach you how to 1) assess needs, resources, and capacity for health education; 2) plan health education; 3) implement health education; 4) conduct evaluation and research; 5) administer and manage health education; 6) serve as a resource; and 7) communicate, promote, and advocate for health education. When you finish our certificate program, you can continue your education by applying to the master’s degree program in community health.
