South Florida Preparedness Initiatives

The department of global health is home to two graduate certificates, a master of public health degree, and an undergraduate minor that equip students with knowledge and real-world exposure to public health preparedness. To accommodate students’ busy schedules, three of the programs are completely online. “The virtual format is particularly attractive to U.S. public health service officers, military personnel, and other out-of-state students,” said Dr. Wayne Westhoff, associate professor of global health and director of the disaster management and humanitarian assistance programs. “Plus, some out-of-state and international students are eligible for a reduced tuition waiver, which is an added bonus.”
