Strategic Health and Risk Communication
The new Strategic Health & Risk Communication certificate offers undergraduate students the knowledge, skills and experience related to applying communication principles to address public health problems. It will help prepare students to better meet the evolving health needs of society at large and use their health promotion and/or communication skills in an applied manner. The program will culminate in a capstone course in which students will create a public health communication campaign for a community client, providing students with valuable experiential and hands-on learning.
This interdisciplinary certificate program is expected to benefit students as it will qualify them to claim expertise in strategic health and risk communication, and expand their career opportunities in the fast-growing area.
The SHRC track requires 6 courses in a balanced curriculum: two core courses at Grady College, two courses at the College of Public Health, and two elective special topics courses. Students will apply for acceptance into the certificate program. However, students outside the certificate can take these courses, thus broadening the number of students introduced to this discipline.
