The undergraduate certificate in health policy prepares students to understand and shape health policy in Wisconsin and in the U.S.
The certificate in health policy is an interdisciplinary program, welcoming majors across UW-Madison. Coursework includes an introduction to health policy, analytic skills for health policy, a specialization course from a variety of options across campus, and applied fieldwork experience.
To get to the root causes of complicated health policy issues, you’ll learn to use methods from economics, sociology, and political science. With help from partners in many fields, including psychology, urban planning, and medicine, you and interdisciplinary classmates will search for better policies and interventions that can serve the public good.
