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.
The certificate program is open to currently enrolled masters and doctoral students at the Johns Hopkins University, with the exception of JHSPH MAS students, who are not eligible to apply until they have completed their primary degree program.
