SHSU Offers New Graduate Certificate

Published on November 09, 2017 by Larry Crippen

Few topics dominate today’s public discourse like healthcare. In a rapidly expanding digital media world, health information can often be immense and overwhelming. Employers in the healthcare field need well-trained communicators who can keep up with an ever-changing industry.

Identifying health communication as an area with strong job growth potential, Sam Houston State University has collaborated among the departments of Mass Communication, Population Health and Sociology to offer a new Graduate Certificate in Health Communication and Public Relations.

The new certificate program is aimed primarily at post-baccalaureate students interested in developing expertise in health-related communication as it applies in both academic and non-academic settings. The program provides students completing undergraduate degrees in mass communication (especially the public relations/advertising track) or public health the opportunity to build specialized skills.

Other individuals the program aims to serve include communication practitioners who want to update their skills with new techniques and technologies specifically directed toward health communication, as well as national and international students who need the access and flexibility offered by online coursework and a virtual internship.
