UF offers one Graduate Certificate in Public Health, but has several curriculum options, or emphases, available within the Graduate Certificate.  The Graduate Certificate in Public Health Foundations consists of the five Public Health Core classes and gives an introduction to key public health concepts.  This option is excellent for a person interested in exploring public health curriculum before applying to the full MPH program, or for someone interested in studying public health before taking the CPH exam.  Other emphases are available in specific areas of interest, with curriculum consisting of at least two Public Health Core courses and other elective courses specific to the emphasis.  To see all of the available emphases, please visit http://onlinecertificate.mph.ufl.edu/.  Applicants to the campus certificate program also have the opportunity to design a specialty certificate based on personal interest and available coursework.  Accepted applicants for the specialty certificate will work with the academic advisor to design a unique plan of study.
