Population and Health Certificate Program

Sponsored By: Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health

Onsite | Part-Time | 1-3 years

About This Program

The Population & Health certificate program is designed to serve two audiences—master’s or doctoral degree students at The Johns Hopkins University and junior and mid-level professionals—desiring to expand their knowledge of population dynamics and its linkages with public health issues and their ability to relate population-level concepts and measures of fertility, morbidity and mortality, and migration to epidemiologic risks. A population’s health is shaped by fertility, mortality and migration patterns, and population numbers themselves provide the denominators of basic measures of public health, such as life expectancy, cause-specific mortality rates and infection rates.
