The online Health Communication certificate and Master's specialization prepares professionals to be communication leaders in the fields of health and wellness. Enrolled students experience insights and training to incorporate dynamic emerging communication opportunities into their work. By implementing the knowledge, strategies, and techniques learned, students are better positioned to advance the health and wellness of both individuals and communities.
Both the certificate and the graduate specialization are suitable for professionals of all levels. From individual practitioners engaged in promoting health and wellness, to those working in major private, non-profit, and governmental health-related organizations, students learn not only the skills to take advantage of the latest trends and platforms in communication, but how to apply them.
Both programs are ideal for prospective students who work in a hospital, clinic, an insurance company, public or private health organizations, the wellness industry, or those who seek to enter a field that is full of opportunity. Those who complete the Emerging Media – Health Communication Certificate program will have studied the latest trends in communication and healthcare and leave prepared to take their organization into the future.
Designed from the ground up to be flexible, the certificate and specialization option are entirely online and asynchronous, which translates to a life, work, education balance.
Students may complete either the certificate or the Master's in Emerging Media with a specialization in Health Communication in as little as 1.5 years.
