Public Health Education - Graduate Certificate

Page address:

The Certificate in the Public Health Education is a 21-credit departmental program that
offers coursework in five major disciplines of health promotion for students wishing to
earn graduate credit. The courses are taught by faculty at Minnesota State University,
Mankato and are offered through the medium of distance learning. Certificate coursework
may be transferable to a degree program within the Minnesota State University College
of Graduate Studies and Research or to other graduate programs. This program offers
greater flexibility for students who wish to enhance their knowledge and skill base in
community health promotion but do not wish to commit to the extended curriculum of
a graduate degree.
