The certificate consists of two Global Health Core courses and two Methods and Practice core courses, complemented by three elective courses and an internship/field requirement. The seven-course CGHA sequence prepares students for systematic, evidence-based approaches to a broad range of global health problems relating to development, diplomacy, security, trade and human rights.

In addition to coursework, you're required to complete 150 hours at an internship. If you have questions about these requirements or internship opportunities, we encourage you to speak with an advisor.
