Part of the Public Health Practice major, this certificate program is designed for professionals working in health or human services. The certificate is awarded upon successful completion of at least 14 credits. Most students complete the curriculum by attending at least two sessions of the Public Health Institute, held in May and June every year.

This training prepares public health workers and others to respond to incidents of bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and other emerging public health issues. Many students use their public health knowledge and skills to enhance opportunities in their current work or career path.
