The University of Pennsylvania has many certificate programs for currently matriculated students and several of them are relevant to careers in public health. With proper planning, MPH students have the option to add a certificate to their degree with the addition of one extra course. This is possible because the MPH program allows students to take up to three electives outside of the program.

Should I Add a Certificate to My MPH?

Adding a certificate may increase the total number of courses you need to complete both the Certificate and the MPH. Students should consider adding a Certificate only if that specialization will help them with their future careers. Decisions about adding a Certificate will be made after matriculation and in conjunction with your Academic Advisor, who can assess whether the addition makes sense.
