I heard that you have a Certificate in Public Health; can I pursue the certificate and then transition to the BSPH program?

The College of Public Health offers an Undergraduate Certificate in Public Health that is composed of 18 hours of online coursework. Students interested in learning more about the field of public health,  transitioning from another health related field into public health, or who already hold a bachelors or associate degree are welcomed to apply for this program .  Students interested in the online BSPH program many begin their curriculum in the certificate program and may transition BSPH degree at a later time. Students may receive federal financial aid to complete their Certificate in Public Health, and should review their eligibility with a financial aid counselor.
