        The Global Health and Rural Community Health graduate certificate programs prepare professionals with in-depth knowledge to enhance care to populations in the underserved rural and global health fields. Completed in 12 credit hours, the online certificate programs share two common core courses with an individualized practicum experience during the third semester in the principle area of interest (either rural or global health). The three courses are consecutive, building over three semesters (fall, spring and summer) and culminating in either a Global Health Certificate or a Rural Community Health Certificate based on the individualized plan of study. Interested graduate and professional level students are encouraged to inquire. Applications open May 1 - August 1.
