The CAS in Global Health is a 15-credit hour graduate program providing students advanced knowledge in global health concepts, policy, and practice. The CAS in Global Health can be offered in combination with any graduate degree or pursued as a stand-alone Certificate. It is particularly useful in providing students in technical or terminal degrees with global health credentials to help them pursue their careers in a global setting.
This program is open to all enrolled Syracuse University graduate students. Students concurrently enrolled in a Syracuse University graduate program apply to the program using the internal admission process. Applicants who are not currently Syracuse University graduate students, submit a formal application to Syracuse University. Admissions requirements for this program independent of an SU graduate program include a) a bachelor’s degree with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA, b) undergraduate transcripts, c) 2 letters of recommendation, one of which must be an academic reference, d) a resume, and e) personal statement.
Eligibility requirement: To be awarded a Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS), a student must be matriculated in the certificate program for at least one semester. Matriculation may not be backdated.
Program may be pursued on a part-time basis.
Students only enrolled in a CAS program are not eligible for department financial aid. Additional information regarding loan availability for CAS programs can be found at https://graduateadmissions.syr.edu/funding/
Students may transfer up to 3 credits. Substituted/transferred course work should cover material equivalent to that which is covered in the relevant required course. Substitution/transfer requests will need to be approved by the Public Health graduate program director.
