The Certificate in Global Health will be offered as recognition of a student’s interest and accomplishments in preparing themselves for continued involvement and possibly a career in global health. The Biology track will require four semesters of course work with an optional International experience where funding is available. The focus of the certificate program is an interdisciplinary one in which the issues of food security and ecology, with reference to human health, are addressed. The undergraduate and graduate certificates require the INTH301 or INTH401, respectively, combined with three biology courses chosen from the following list:

BIOL301/401: Biotechnology Laboratory

BIOL328/428: Plant genomics and Proteomics

BIOL 342/442 Parasitology

BIOL343/443 Microbiology

BIOL 351/451: Principles of Ecology

BIOL 352/452 Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases


Where funding is available the students can participate in summer international experiences in Southern Africa to aid development of locally adapted crops and medicinal plants.
