The certificate trains graduate students for careers in health-related areas in the public and not-for-profit sectors. The program is designed for graduate students with domestic and international health interests and provides both broad training in core topics in health and health policy as well as courses in specialized areas. SPIA master's students are eligible for the certificate. Princeton University graduate students in other departments may also make arrangements to complete the certificate. The certificate is not open to undergraduates or to students from other universities. It is not a stand-alone certificate program; students must be enrolled in a graduate degree-granting program at Princeton to receive the certificate. The certificate does not appear on the official transcript. Program Offerings Certificate Program description The certificate program, started in 2003-04, reflects the growing importance of health as a major public policy issue, and underscores SPIA's commitment to teaching and research in health and health policy. SPIA master's students and Ph.D. students from other departments can enroll in the certificate program online at https://spianet.princeton.edu/spiaforms/cert_declare.php. The enrollment is non-binding. Ph.D. students should first discuss their plans to complete the certificate with their dissertation chairs. Courses Certificate students are required to complete two core courses and two approved health-related electives. The two core courses are usually offered every year. In years a core course is not offered, a substitute course is designated. Students may take the core courses in any sequence during their first or second years. The core courses may not be taken P/D/F if students wish to count them towards the certificate. Faculty Director Heather H. Howard (co-director) C. Jessica E.
