Online Graduate Certificate in Public Health
The Graduate Certificate in Public Health online program at Oregon State University is designed for public health practitioners and others seeking professional development and continuing education within the field of public health.
The School of Biological and Population Health Sciences links individual biology and behavior to population and environmental health to better understand how environmental and behavioral factors, including food and nutrition, physical activity, water, pollution, carcinogens, biohazards, etc. influence the development and progression of biological disease. Applying the quantitative methods of epidemiology and biostatistics allows better understanding of the causes of population-level disease as well as methods of intervention and prevention.
The School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences strives to advance understanding of the social and behavioral determinants and consequences of health and to promote health throughout the life course. We aim to integrate developmental, prevention, translation and policy sciences in an effort to improve health and well-being through research, teaching and public health practice.
