SCOPE’s Public Health certificate program is a fully online micro-credential which can be earned in as little as four months. Every course sources its heart and material from a biblically informed worldview and is designed to fit the adult learner’s schedule.

The program uses real-world cases and problem-solving to help students think intuitively about public health. It provides a new way of thinking about health outcomes that will allow professionals to expand their outreach in health care administration or population health. It combines understanding of public and global health with management principles in population health to create a big-picture approach to improving health.


Students will develop a foundational understanding of factors that determine health outcomes both in the U.S. and around the world. They will learn how a public health approach seeks to improve the health of whole populations rather than individual patients. Students will analyze how government policies, the environment and socioeconomic factors determine health and create disparities. In coursework, students will design evidence-based interventions to improve the health of populations.
