The Health Equity Graduate Certificate increases post-baccalaureate students’, graduate students’, and working health professionals’ knowledge of the root causes of health inequities. When you complete this certificate, you will be prepared to develop and implement strategic initiatives that diminish health disparities and foster equitable health among populations.
The Health Equity Graduate Certificate program does not require any undergraduate preparatory course work, and there are no required prerequisites.
Current OU students must have an overall undergraduate or graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher and submit a personal statement. Non-OU students must have an overall undergraduate or graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher and submit a personal statement, official transcripts indicating a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited undergraduate institution, and two recommendation forms.
