A brief description of the certificate program(s):

Health, Science and Society Certificate Program
This certificate program is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in medicine, public health, healthcare policy, or as healthcare providers and those who are interested in the impact of science on society. Premedical and prehealth students needing additional humanities and social science coursework may find this certificate beneficial, particularly as medical and professional health schools place an increasing importance on cultural competency.

This certificate program is considered sustainability-focused as it addresses key sustainability challenges within the SDGs: Goal 3 Good Health and Well-being, Goal 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, and Goal 10 Reduce Inequalities. This program includes courses which equip learners with knowledge in psychology, stereotyping & prejudice, bioethics, and social psychology with the aim to breakdown barriers in community health and well-being, addressing the above sustainability challenges.
