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 will be published in The Guide on June 1.

In the interest of building a truly interdisciplinary experience, the Certificate welcomes majors across UW–Madison. Interested students should consider registering now for required courses in Fall 2021.
