As part of our effort to develop global tobacco control capacity, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has developed a fully accredited certificate program in Global Tobacco Control. The program aims to provide formal education to research scientists, tobacco control professionals, and graduate and post-graduate students to equip them with the technical skills necessary to play key roles in tobacco control efforts. Tobacco control professionals, epidemiologists, behavioral scientists, government officials, and others involved in tobacco control are encouraged to apply.
The Global Tobacco Control Certificate Program is a rigorous, formal, academic program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Individuals enrolled in the certificate program should be prepared to complete academically rigorous, graduate-level coursework which includes two courses taken online over an eight-week term and four courses taken in person during an intensive two-week program. All required courses are taken for academic credit and students are expected to excel in their coursework with grades of “C” or better.
Upon completion of the certificate program participants will receive an official certificate and transcript which indicates academic credit from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
