The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Global Health is a 19-credit hour graduate program providing students applied skills in global health policy and practice. This program emphasizes the integration of social and behavioral determinants of health combined with practice and evidence-based strategies for developing, implementing, and evaluating programs and policies in global settings. The CAS in Global Health can be offered in combination with any graduate degree, or pursued as a stand-alone Certificate. It is particularly useful in providing students in technical or terminal degrees with global health credentials to help them pursue their careers in a global setting. A practicum concluding the program provides students direct field experience.
Students pursuing a CAS in Global Health will learn to design and implement multidisciplinary fieldwork in global settings through adaptation of technical methodologies and strategies across disciplines. Additionally, this graduate certificate program offers students opportunities for meaningful global engagement with stakeholders in ascertaining needs of communities and appropriate, sustainable strategies for improving health.
At the core of this program is the commitment to serve the public good by enhancing the emotional and physical well-being of individuals, families and communities in the global community. An important theme in the CAS in Global Health program is respect for culture and priority on sustainability. The CAS in Global Health is infused with social and behavioral thinking around global health problems, combined with technical, managerial, and programmatic best practices to create sustainable solutions.
