The Population Health Initiative is now accepting applications for the 2021-22 cohort of students for the Graduate Certificate in International Humanitarian Response. Applications can be submitted until 11:59 p.m. (Pacific) on Friday, May 14, 2021.
The 15-credit certificate is intended to provide University of Washington graduate and professional students from a variety of disciplines with an integrated body of study to better support prevention, mitigation, response and recovery from crises to assist those affected by disasters to recover their “normal” way of life.
The certificate curriculum offers admitted students a solid grounding in the fundamental skillsets needed by any international humanitarian worker, regardless of their specific role. In particular, the core curriculum was chosen to ensure the certificate integrates the work of the immediate and mid-term humanitarian response to a disaster with longer-term development activities in a disaster-prone region.
The certificate is offered as an interdisciplinary program through the UW Graduate School.
