About the Program

Are you interested in learning how to address community health concerns from childhood to older ages? Our graduate certificate in Health Promotion Across the Lifespan will teach you about adapting to diverse community groups, providing effective programming in a variety of settings, assessing needs of the service population, and using a client-centered lens to develop meaningful interventions so you can have a successful career in a non-profit, government, agency, or other setting.

To earn your certificate, you’ll be required to complete six courses—doable within one academic year. Your coursework will cover a wide range of topics, including how individuals can manage internal and external stressors to optimize their well-being. You’ll learn about important topics such as substance abuse, prevention, and treatment. In addition, you’ll get an advanced review of the biological, sociological, psychological, and ethical aspects of human sexuality as encountered by health education specialists and human services practitioners. Finally, we’ll teach you about issues related to the advanced practice and management of health education/promotion programs.
