The certificate program will require the completion of 16 credits. Within the construct of the Certificate program, there is an opportunity to focus study upon one of two tracks: International Bioethics or Social Justice as applied to health disparities and global health.

In addition to the required 16-academic credits that comprise the certificate, students are highly encouraged to take the above suggested courses available throughout the university to further their knowledge about international bioethics and social justice as related to health. These additional courses would be taken as part of, or electives through, the student home school or program. There is also a limit of 6 credits overlap between a student’s degree program and the certificate, and these must be electives in each program. In the case of non-matriculated graduate students, entry to these courses will be at the discretion of the offering school and instructor.
