Course Materials and Textbooks

All academic credit students and all professional continuing education participants are responsible for purchasing required course materials and/or textbooks in addition to tuition and fees. Course material requirements will be available upon registration via the Canvas site.

Course Format

The Public Health Institute features in-person courses that will be taking place on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities West Bank campus. Select courses will be available online. Students taking online courses are expected to participate during the scheduled dates and times as online courses are synchronous.

We value disability as an aspect of diversity and want to ensure that you can fully participate in all programming available to you. If you have a disability or health condition or suspect you have one and would like to have a confidential discussion about accommodations, please contact the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at 612-626-1333 or drc@umn.edu as soon as possible. Some accommodations may take time to arrange.
