Enabling evidence-based and socially responsive action on human health risks.
Graduate Certificate in Risk Science and Human Health
The Certificate will be open to Masters and PhD students enrolled in any graduate program at the University of Michigan as of Fall 2012. No additional fees are required by the Certificate and students who are able to complete the requirements using their elective courses will not incur any additional costs.
Students applying to the certificate will receive credit for courses they have already completed which are part of the certificate curriculum. Students will need to have earned a grade of 'B¹ or better in the classes they designate as fulfilling the requirements. Once students believe they have completed all the requirements of the certificate, they should contact the Admissions Coordinator, who will verify their course requirements. If all requirements are met, a certificate will be issued. Upon issuance, the certificate will be denoted on the student's transcript.
Sequence of courses
The courses may be taken during any term that works best for students, though special care will need to be taken by students to complete any necessary course prerequisites. Certificate students should be able to complete their course of study in 20 months with no external supervision required. However, we will encourage students who intend to complete the Certificate to identify themselves as they begin their academic studies to insure they are able to optimally tailor their certificate coursework for their intended career path and to provide advising as needed.
