Are you passionate about improving health outcomes in multicultural and complex environments in the United States and abroad? The Undergraduate Certificate in Global Health from the University of Arizona Online equips you with the knowledge and skills to confidently and competently approach the many health challenges across our borders and cultures.

This program introduces you to the world’s vast diversity of determinants of health and disease. You will learn to investigate infectious diseases, poverty, conflicts and emergencies, health inequity, principles, and the impact of health systems reforms. You will have an opportunity to critically appraise health systems in different parts of the world and analyze current and emerging global health priorities. This certificate supplies foundational knowledge in paramount global disease prevention and health promotion initiatives.

Developed by public health experts with extensive experience in global health research and practice, the certificate curriculum uses the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as a guiding framework for in-field preparation.
