Infectious diseases continue to remain an important threat to public health. Recent outbreaks of SARS-CoV-2, Ebola, Zika, and other diseases vividly illustrate the need to be well prepared against infectious disease threats. As such, students who can demonstrate strong training in the area of infectious diseases are and will remain in demand at organizations such as local and state health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and many other institutions, both public and private, that deal with public health.

This certificate provides students who have a strong interest in infectious diseases at the human population level with a program of study and formal recognition in this area.  By earning this certificate, students will be able to explicitly demonstrate the infectious disease-related training and skills that are of increasing importance in the field.
