Public Health Certificate

Expand your knowledge of public health!

Completion of the Public Health Certificate will allow you to expand your knowledge of public health and understand the application of public health concepts to clinical and related practices. The courses will explore fundamental concepts in public health theory, epidemiology and application of public health concepts through programming. The certificate is a collaborative program between South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota, allowing you to learn from public health experts at both universities.

This certificate is ideal for students in health professions majors and related programs. Adding the Public Health Certificate to your pharmacy, nursing, dietetics or other health professions major will augment the public health knowledge that you learn in your major courses and prepare you to apply public health concepts in your professional career. The certificate is also a great option for practicing health care professionals to expand your knowledge of public health. All courses in the certificate are offered online.
