Community Health Undergraduate Certificate
The community health undergraduate certificate aims to provide specific training to individuals seeking knowledge and experiences pertaining to community health professions. This certificate program was designed to meet the needs of training community health workers who work with and educate small groups and communities to improve the health of their constituents.
This certificate program will provide a community and public health-focused vocational direction for students, including those currently working in public health seeking enhanced training. The coursework examines what factors cause public health issues and what communities and small groups can do to overcome these behaviors.
Courses are designed to complement several Kansas State University degree programs. The flexible and health-focused curriculum creates a professionally aligned program that allows students the opportunity to earn this certificate while completing their degree on time. This academic certificate program is not a licensing or credentialing certification.
Kansas State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
The community health undergraduate certificate is offered through the Department of Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health in the K-State College of Health and Human Sciences.
