MS in Kinesiology—Graduate Certificate in PH

Graduate Certificate in Public Health

The Graduate Certificate in Public Health is a 15-credit-hour program of study. Courses for the certificate program are offered in the fall, spring and summer. Courses are available in class or online. In order to receive the Graduate Certificate in Public Health, students must complete 15 credit hours of approved public health coursework with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. Transfer credit or course waivers are not allowed as substitution for any courses in the certificate program.

NOTE: Students who have been awarded a Graduate Certificate in Public Health have two years to apply their credits toward the MPH or MS in Kinesiology degree. Graduates of the certificate program who do not apply to the MPH or MS in Kinesiology program within two years after completion of the certificate will not be allowed to apply the 15 credits from the certificate program toward the MPH or MS in Kinesiology Programs on the IUPUI campus degree. For example, a student who uses some or all of the certificate credits toward the Master’s in Public Health (MPH) cannot use the same credits toward the MS in Kinesiology degree. Admission to or successful completion of the Certificate in Public Health does not guarantee subsequent admission into the MPH Program or MS in Kinesiology graduate programs.
