Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs

 

The new Certificate in Health Policy prepares undergraduate students to understand and shape health policy in Wisconsin and in the United States. Coursework includes an introduction to health policy, analytic skills for health policy, a specialization course from a variety of options across campus, and an applied fieldwork experience. Official program details can be found in The Guide.

In the interest of building a truly interdisciplinary experience, the Certificate welcomes majors across UW–Madison. More than 50 students entered our first cohort of students in January. The application will again be open November 1-30, 2022, and then in May 2023. In the meantime, courses you take will “count” prospectively toward the Certificate requirements.
