Certificate in Public Health Sciences
Explore the core science of public health through the Certificate in Public Health Sciences. Many students use the certificate to supplement existing graduate training in non-public health fields or as a pathway toward completing the Master of Public Health. A certificate program is a great way to retool, refine and reinvest in your professional development.
MPH students who select UNC as their home campus may apply for available Graduate
Assistantship (GA) positions. Several students are selected annually to serve as
GAs in the Colorado School of Public Health at UNC, and a limited number of GA positions
are available in other programs on the UNC Campus through the Graduate School & International Admissions.
In return for ten hours per week of assistance with faculty research, class preparation and programmatic support, GAs in the Community Health Program receive a stipend and payment of a portion of ColoradoSPH tuition and UNC student activity fees (excluding technology fees). The terms of GA positions outside Community Health vary by program. Many programs calculate tuition benefits based on UNC, versus ColoradoSPH, tuition rates and do not pay any portion of fees. Be certain you review and understand the terms of your employment.
