Overview

Public Health degree offered by the University of Arizona is committed to serving the public health educational needs of working professionals in the State of Arizona and beyond. In addition to offering curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels, we offer four graduate certificate programs. Designed for working professionals and/or those exploring the field of public health, the certificate programs provide skill enhancement for both domestic and international participants who have limited time to pursue a campus-based full graduate degree program.

As a fully online program, the certificate is offered as part of the UA Online Campus. It is a variable schedule program that can be completed in one to four years. Students enrolled in a UA Online Campus program are restricted to taking only those courses offered through the campus and may not register in Main Campus courses while in the program.
