Certificate Options with Health Science Major


What is a Certificate? 

A certificate is a good way to make your degree more marketable.  Sometimes students don't have time to add a whole minor, but by doing a certificate, you show employers that you have specialized knowledge.  Certificates range from 12-24 hours.  They are great to add to any curriculum program.

Students wishing to receive the certificate must complete the Undergraduate Certificate Form
