Health Data Science (Graduate Certificate)

Beginning in the 2023-2024 academic year, the Health Data Science Graduate Certificate is pausing admissions to the program. Current students will continue to have access to the same high-quality education and resources until they graduate.

The Graduate Certificate in Health Data Science (GCHDS), offered by the Department of Health Management and Policy within the College of Health and Human Services, prepares students interested in the field of health data science who want to improve their analytic skills in healthcare. The certificate can be completed in one semester or up to three years.

Students in the GCHDS program can expect to gain exposure to the role of analytics in healthcare, statistical and programming foundations, and the visualization and translation of healthcare data.

Successful completion of the certificate will provide students an opportunity to apply and continue on with the Master of Science in Health Data Science. All credits from the certificate will be applied to the MS degree, leaving only eight remaining courses.
