Certificate in Natural Environment and Human Health
The Certificate of Natural Environment and Human Health is a collaboration between the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources and the School of Health Professions.
Healthy environments help produce and maintain healthy populations. As populations grow and the environment changes (i.e., climate change), the need for trained professionals that can assess needs, design interventions, implement solutions, and create sustainable policy is also growing. Drawing on the strengths of the Department of Public Health and the School of Natural Resources, this certificate is geared towards students who work, or plan to work, in the areas where human health and the environment intersect.
The certificate consists of four courses for a total of 12 credit hours. Students must complete the courses listed in section A, one course listed in section B, and one course listed in section C. Students must receive at least a C in all coursework to receive the certificate.
