There has been a consistent demand for focused efforts that address the infrastructure and core services of public health. To address this need, the Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health has developed a Certificate in Public Health (PBC) program of study. Those who work in public health but who have never had any formal public health training may have an interest in this program. The certificate is an 18-credit hour program and the content is the same as the core taught in the Master of Public Health graduate degree program.
There is a growing need within the state of Arkansas for individuals to be trained in the core elements of environmental and occupational hygiene. This graduate certificate provides practical knowledge and tools that can be immediately applied in industrial, manufacturing, hospital, and construction settings. This graduate certificate enhances the individual’s ability to recognize, identify, measure, and control chemical, physical and biological hazards.
The Certificate in Regulatory Science consists of 12 semester credit hours with courses in current regulatory statutes, safety assessment, clinical trials design and management, and data quality requirements for regulatory decision-making.
